Pileated woodpeckers

Just before I started cooking dinner, we noticed a pair of pileated woodpeckers in the ravine forest below the house.  A welcome rain had started to fall, and they were both seemingly hunkered down.

The male was in an old snag, tucked in among its top.


The female was hanging on to the side of another tree trunk to the left, appressed to the trunk to avoid the rain as much as she could, I guess.


They stayed through dinner, but then flew off.   Wouldn't it be nice if a pair made the ravine home?

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