A pileated woodpecker

A Sunday morning excursion at the Garden (where I work) found us noticing a pileated woodpecker.

Its loud call is distinctive; no, that's not a hawk, I said, and then we spotted the vocalizer, a beautiful and striking bird.

Pileated woodpeckers are LARGE, the size of crows. 

And striking. 

I didn't have a camera along, but here's a link to the Cornell Lab of Lab to learn more about them.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
