Woodpecker On The Run!

This mommy woodpecker has recently moved into one of our birdboxes one evening I caught her looking out and when she saw me snapping her picture she took off and this what I captured! Pretty neat she's a very beautiful pileated woodpecker - now we are just waiting for the babies to arrive :)

The mommy woodpecker is very camera shy. :-) You managed to capture her when she was taking off. Nice shot. Maybe she'll come back again.

What a great shot! I enlarged it to see its full wonderfulness and it did not disappoint.
