A pair of Pileated Woodpeckers made a nest in my horse pasture in 2016. Every morning I would sit near the tree with my camera on a tripod and my Kindle to read while I spent time watching them. They didn’t mind me being there at all, and I was able to photograph the family from even before they peeked out of the hole until all three chicks left the nest.

Outstanding! What lens did you use?
Thank you very much. I used a Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 at 500mm. Nikon D800
Wow! What a lucky photographer you are… Nice Job capturing this sweet family.
Wonderful photo! I can almost hear the youngsters!
Thank you. Yes, I was lucky that they chose my pasture for their best
Beautiful photo. I’ve got one of an adult eating at my bird feeder. They’re amazing birds.
Congrats on a beautifully captured photo
