    This is only the fourth sighting of a Pileated Woodpecker in 35 years on my acreage.

    Two minutes of pure fun :)

    Thanks for the comments Everyone !

    John > yeah, life got in the way but I'm back with a D500. You can expect four months of chickadees and woodpeckers on a branch from me, he, he....

    Just so long as they're not the same pics over and over. Nice pics, btw, very sharp! I really like his expression and that mouth full in #1.

    Awesome capture Don. We see a lot of them here in WV, USA. And, I know how hard it is to get a good shot of these birds since they can be somewhat skittish. Only 4 sighting in 35 years - you must have been experiencing "buck fever".

    Great shots of the Chickadee and woodpecker. I especially like the feather detail.
