Sitting at my desk the other day I looked up - and here was this find fellow. Don was in the living room so he ran for my camera (it is usually in my pocket, but not this time) and I got about 25 shots before he flew off. He was about 15 feet from where I was sitting. He was eating from the suet feeder that is attached to the end of the grandsons' swingset. I just couldn't believe my eyes. I've seen about four of these Pileated Woodpeckers in my life - and never this close.
