A Pileated Woodpecker for Ruby Tuesday 2

Yesterday evening we had two Pleated Woodpeckers in our yard! wow! It hardly ever happens! what a wonderful sighting experience!
One of these huge magnificent woodpeckers was in our two old tall maples that grow beside our driveway. In the photo above you can see the red flowers of the maple coming into blossom.
The other Pileated perched on our hydro pole.

these pictures were taken through my kitchen window. David had seen them as they arrived and called me. I went rushing for my camera as quickly as I could move. I think I will focus my birdcam at the old maple today in case they return! Oh, could I be so lucky again? Lets certainlyhope so!

Great shots!!! It's hard to catch these guys..they move so fast and are so very camera shy :0) Hope they will revisit you.

Mary said...
