So I was following a White-Tailed Deer & her twin fawns, when there came a knocking. Not the gentle tap tap of a Downy or Hairy Woodpecker but that one that sounds as if you are in a construction zone, with a jackhammer.
First one flew in, then a second and finally the third. It was Pileated Woodpecker juveniles, born this Spring. And on their quest for food. I did manage to get a shot or two with two together. The third one was hitting the west side.
They finally settled on an old dead tree for which I was grateful. I not only had them all in one spot but the tree was full of character and provided a great background for their insect searches. Check out Photo #4 and the tongue extended from the woodpecker's beak!
