Pileated Woodpecker

For Easter Weekend, I headed to Ottawa to visit my brother.  We went for a walk on Easter Sunday through the Arboretum and I saw a Pileated Woodpecker way off in the distance through my binoculars.  It flew to a tree where another one was.  I was thrilled!  It was too far off for photos though.  A little while later, while walking in the rocks at the edge of Dow's Lake, I turned and saw this guy 6 feet in front of me!!  I took 100+ are two :)

Perfect picture....only took 100+ tries :)


  1. Your last picture is great! Amazing you got to see this bird from so close.

    1. That is by far my best picture of him! He didn't seem bothered at all by the attention :)
