Pileated Woodpecker I chased this guy through thick vegetation for over an hour before I was able to get a clean shot. I was very surprised how large this bird was compared to other woodpeckers I have captured in the past. Dryocopus pileatus,Geotagged,Pileated Woodpecker,Summer,United States Click/tap to enlarge

The Pileated Woodpecker is a very large North American woodpecker, roughly crow-sized, inhabiting deciduous forests in eastern North America, the Great Lakes, the boreal forests of Canada, and parts of the Pacific coast. It is also the largest woodpecker in the United States, excepting the possibly extinct Ivory-billed Woodpecker.
