I heard this Pileated Woodpecker’s distinctive call before I saw it. I looked out the window and there it was pounding away at the large stump just yards from our kitchen window. Wood chips flying everywhere. It was a new yard bird, and a very exciting experience.

What a lovely photo. I get Downy and pink bellied flickers at my feeder.
