Pileated Perfection

Such a treat to catch this female Pileated Woodpecker in action and hard at work.  If you look closely the line from her bill to her throat is all black.  The males sport a red line from bill to throat.  This is a super easy way to determine who is visiting you.  You can learn all about the great Pileated Woodpecker, and any other birds that interest you, online at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.  (www.allaboutbirds.org).  A fabulous resource for bird lovers!
