Visit from a Pileated Woodpecker

We've had lots of Pileated Woodpeckers in and around our yard since we bought our home here in Fairfield Glade in 2002. BUT--until a few days ago, we had not seen any of them at our feeders. I knew that the suet was being eaten since it was disappearing. BUT--I had only seen the Downy Woodpeckers and our Carolina wrens at the suet feeder.
However, this past Saturday, while George and I were eating a late brunch/breakfast, there he was---a Pileated Woodpecker at the suet feeder. George jumped up, got his camera and managed to get some pictures for me to share.
When I bought my suet feeder, I bought a small one (not knowing which birds would come to that feeder). NOW--that I've had the BIG Pileated at that feeder, it's probably time to purchase the larger suet feeder---just for him. Isn't he beautiful???? Hope you enjoy our pictures, one above and three below!!!



GO.............Bam Bam Bam!!!!

Hugs to All,
