Glancing toward the slider while in the kitchen, I was lucky to see this Pileated Woodpecker fly in. Landing on one of the many dead tree stumps, it began drilling as I went to grab the camera.
Standing back away from the door to avoid spooking it, I got these through the glass slider so clarity isn't the best. I find this species so fascinating to watch although they are one of the shyest birds ever.
Jumping around the dead stump as if it was on fire, the woodpecker did not spend much time in each spot.
Reviewing the time on my photos, these few were within 3 minutes.
Then it vanished into the woods.
just seeing, saying, and sharing...
