Pileated Woodpecker - Dryocopus pileatus I was just walking up to the beginning of a trail when this woodpecker appeared. Unfortunately, she disappeared just as quickly as she had appeared.

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.
