Pileated Woodpeckers

A magnificent bird! And I normally do not do birds, I don't have the money for the exotic lenses required. This little girl was different, she seemed to be posing for me. I was about ten feet away from her and she just moved from pose to pose quite naturally. Other birds leave her alone, even the blue jays give her the choice of which feeder she wants to be on. We think she's young because her plume isn't yet bright red, more of a bright orange. We've had a couple of them earlier in the year so perhaps this is one of the offspring. She's fun to watch. But I still won't do birds on purpose. Maybe.
