My turn, my turn!

Papa Pileated is feeding his female nestling while her brother squawks impatiently for his turn.
This Pileated Woodpecker nest was in one of many dead trees in the middle of a beaver pond. I took the photo from my pack boat.

Dinosaur in the Trees

Caught this Pileated Woodpecker in my backyard this morning.


A pair of pileated woodpecker chicks eagerly await the arrival of a parent with a tasty meal of bugs. They were perfectly posed when I snapped this shot.

Feed me NOW!!

Several pines in my yard died…they were to tall and to close to the house to remain…had the trees topped off at twenty-five to thirty feet and left the rest for the birds…was not disappointed…got to watch several nest cavities constructed and several clutches raised of several types of woodpeckers…this pic was taken thru my sun roof as I pulled into the driveway…this 30 ft stump is the one I park my car next too…often trees have to come down for safety reasons…but they don’t have to come down all the way…leave what you can…if you are like me you will not be disappointed.
