Pileated Woodpecker

Here is that pileated woodpecker that I mentioned in this post. These are some fairly large birds for New Hampshire and quite the sight to see against the white snow.

Beautiful. I managed to capture a photo (not a good one) of an endangered one just outside my apartment last fall. I don't know what it is but I'm becoming more and more fascinated with birds. ;)

Thanks SewAmy and Jen! I agree that I'm sort of fascinated by birds lately too. These woodpeckers are beautiful and quite the sight against our all white winter backdrop. ALso, these guys seem to fly pretty low to the ground. We saw another one this past weekend too- same thing flying in and out of trees very low to the ground.
