Another of my pileated friend.

Notice the strong tail that they use to balance against objects while they feed. Very cool.

Just after he left, MRS pileated came by. That's two in 10 minutes ;) Am I making you even MORE jealous?

Nice! There are a lot of woodpeckers here where i live. As they use their tail against the tree for balance, that type of capture would make a good illustration.
