Not-so-common visitors

The Pileated woodpecker and Red-bellied woodpecker are not-so-common visitors to my urban feeders in the city of St. Paul.  They are more common in wooded areas like those around the St. Croix River near Stillwater, Minnesota where these were photographed.

    Beautiful picture of the pileated! I see one every now and then in the woods behind the fireplace in Como. But not often. Not often at all.

    I first saw pileated woodpecker at Ottertail Lake. I was amazed at its large size and its voracious pecking with chips flying around like crazy. Amazing creature.
