Mates

Caught this pair on the snag outside my kitchen window. I had to take this photo through the window AND the window was screened. So it it not a clear or good shot. But it does capture two together near my house which is rare. I quietly stepped out on the deck to see if I could get a better photo and only caught this through the deck before they took off, beady eyed little pair that they were.

I am truly envious. Just wonder if there is anything in my woods this beautiful for me to take pictures of.

These are amazing birds (pileated)? And bravo for the pictures! (Also for capturing that racoon).

I'm amazed (and evious) at your luck, Tabor! If I could see just one pileated woody I'd be ecstatic, but two? All I can say is, 'Wow!"
Good for you getting these pics :)
I hope your nocturnal visitors have not been keeping you awake since their noisy party (or fight) night. You sure have quite a variety of wildlife there, Tabor.
You have me wondering with your comment on my latest post....what's an oak mast?
Have your snowdrops bloomed yet?

More pileated? woodpecker envy here, Tabor - saw these only once, years ago, in Kentucky.
