  1. Great capture! I look at and love your photos every day. Never having been to your part of the world it’s great to see it through your eyes. I don’t comment every day but believe me I’m “commenting”.
    I don’t get a lot of comments on my blog, http://www.coupevilleimpressions.com but I hope people are enjoying my blog as much as I do yours
    Have a very Merry Christmas and I look forward to your continued efforts.

  2. Brilliant action bird photo.

    The Eurasian woodpeckers are all different from the American ones (I’ve seen Pileated on my one visit to the States) and the nearest equivalent is Black Woodpecker, which is widespread in continental Europe but not Britain or Ireland. We in Britain have nothing that big.

    1. We have the downy woodpeckers which are much smaller. This particular pileated loves our crabapple tree in front of the house and visits it at least once early in the morning and again around dusk. He (?) is very noisy and the way he looks around after calling makes him seem lonely. Now that the bears are asleep we’ll put out a suet ball to cheer him up. Thanks so much for sharing what happens in your part of the world.
