Pileated Woodpecker!

This morning, we heard a racket, like someone hammering down near the driveway. It was so loud, I was sure it was a bear forging himself on cascara fruit, or the neighbor building something down the street.

Up in the tree a Pileated Woodpecker busily hammered and cracked an old alder’s branches. I tried and failed to snap a picture. But my, those birds are big.
