Thanks very much Louis.. I've had a lot of "practice" trying to get one of these in flight. This was one that I finally said "yes - got one !!"I tip my hat to you Bob for this shot. I have these guys in my backyard everyday at the suet feeder and this is a most difficult shot to get, so very well done.
Thanks Brian. Yes it's great that they seem to hang around on a daily basis now. Exciting when a pileated lands 2 ft above my head while I was out filling a bird feeder.Good to see your visits continue and congrats on this accomplishment. As mentioned, not easy to get this level of photograph of this particular bird.
