I caught this photo of a pileated woodpecker today. I think this is a female. For a better view of the photo, click on the photo, or go to my photography blog here. This was taken through my windshield. She was darting from tree to tree and was moving further from me by the minute so I just snapped the shot. A couple of years ago, a pileated woodpecker nearly crashed into my windshield as I was driving on Highbridge Hill, scaring me to death. Last summer I saw one fly overhead in Rutland. For some reason, they remind me of prehistoric birds when they are in flight.
