A Pileated Woodpecker couple on a branch in Edmonton's river valley last weekend.

Here's the couple cropped and enlarged for a better,  if fuzzy,  look.

May we never live in a world that doesn't have pileated woodpeckers. That is a handsome pair.

I agree completely.

I love the way they're at right angles to each other, yet so much a pair.

Leah, great capture!

On my walk today I could hear woodpeckers in the wood on my walk but didn't see any.

Leah J. Utas said...

Mary Anne, it is interesting.

Barbara, thanks.

They're fine birds. I've hear a few around here on occasion but have never seen them yet.

I hope you get to see them soon, Hilary.
