    One of the many birds that have eluded me for so long, I can finally check off the list and it appeared he was building a nest! I crawled under some pine trees and got about 20 feet away. It was heavily shaded so I made due. Also some other recent shots. Still battling with Canon, they finally sent me a replacement 7d M2 and it is as bad as my first one. The loaner is rocking though! Thanks for looking and comments welcome.

    I seen one pleated out in the open.Flew off just when I stopped the car. One of the most skittish birds I think.

    Great shots.

    Hopefully Canon lets you just keep the loaner (with a partial refund would be nice).

    Congrats on the Pileated! they are buggers to get a decent shot of. We hear them all the time in these parts, but just try and get a decent shot! Very nice capture....you can now live on your laurels. LOL
