After seeing my pic of a pileated woodpecker last month, one of my readers sent me his own great shot of a pileated. Doug McLennan runs a photography company called Nature Quest Images (www.naturefocus.ca).
Here’s what he had to say about his shot of the pileated:
Just saw your great picture of the Pileated Woodpecker.
Thought you might enjoy this one. I’ve taken lots of shots of Pileated Woodpeckers but I have never seen a juvenile one before. They have a pretty cool hairdo. I had this mom (at least I think it’s a mom) and her baby visit my suet feeder at the middle of August for about two weeks.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing Doug!
