While I was working on the computer in the back bedroom I saw a large flash of red & black fly by the window. I knew it wasn't a cardinal. I carefully walked into the living/dining rooms. There on the wooden glider were two pileated woodpeckers.

The entire wall of the living/dining rooms is made up of floor to ceiling windows and french doors. We don't have the screens on the windows. My dslr camera was on the table behind the sofa.

I was able to snap several pictures while the one woodpecker started on the arm of the glider. The gliders are old and we just haven't gotten around to tearing them apart.

We always hear the pileated woodpeckers but this is the first time they have visited up close. We are semi-rural on acreage surrounded by pines & hardwoods with a creek running through the woods on the one side.

How lucky you are! I hear them way more often than I see them. Once in awhile I see them in the trees behind my house and get pictures but never have them in the yard. I have daily visits at the feeder from red-bellied and redheaded woodpeckers..maybe someday I will look out and see the beautiful pileated!
