I was just coming out of Michael's yesterday when Rachel called on my cell phone. Because I was driving, I pulled over into an industrial mall parking lot. As I'm talking to her, I hear a woodpecker in the trees and look up to see a Pileated Woodpecker. Not the best shots, but I only had my 24-70 on the camera. Where is my 400 when I need it?
These are not small shy woodpeckers. They are huge (larger than a crow) and he didn't seem at all concerned that I was watching him from the ground.
