Wonderful images, Glen! Many thanks.

The pileated came back to visit. Here is a rather poor quality snapshot of the bird in one of our shagbark hickory trees.

Nice female pileated, and old tree looks cool ..I haven't seen one this year yet, but hope to see one. Nice pictures Wayne from the Southwest, is cool to see a Roadrunner has been lots of years since Ive seen one, I was looking through some old pictures though and found some of a Phainopepla (sp?) reminds one of the warm Southwest..
Thanks Kevin, I wish I could talk myself into some more capable photography gear, but I have too many hobbies!! So will be content with recording with my point and shoot, and enjoy the photos by others... (show us some ?)

The Pileated and the Ash Tree

Our magnificent ash tree was afflicted with a seam that opened its interior to rot and eventually attracted pileateds to feed (which was fun to watch, but caused concern for the house if the tree tumbled). Last April, I took some snapshots of the pileated-ravaged tree and the birds feeding just before we had the tree felled. Note the wood chips strewn around the base of the tree - woodpecker litter.

Don, great looking woodpecker.
Glen, liked the shot of the eagle swooping in. Kingfishers with those spikey feathers and attitude I consider them sort of the Johnny Rotten of the bird world.

I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed the images you posted, Glen. I wish I could get a shot of "my" kingfisher, whom I often see skimming over the surface of the Conodoguinet or perched on a snag. You eagle shot was spectacular.

Thank you Don your Pileated is majestic, and they are always impressive birds! Hope you and yours and whoever may read this has a nice holiday season this year. Here's a few older pics from the last year or two of kingfishers and Eagle, the best Eagle pic I have I posted quite a long time ago from the nesting pair here, I haven't found the nest they are presently using, today the ice has retreated for a few days, only, but we can see mergansers and goldeneyes today which is very nice.
