This is a Pileated Woodpecker. A somewhat elusive woodpecker that is the size of a Crow. This one was at the side of the road on a tree at window level so slowed down to a crawl and edged up to within 30 ft for this one shot out car window.

"somewhat elusive " is a understatement, the only pics I can get of this guy's, is that of their handy work....well done

Probably wouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear the we see these all the time around here. The casual observer might mistake them for the Ivory Bill and the last I heard a shot like this of the believed extinct bird would be worth a cool million. Head south, HBG…you may get lucky.:fingerscr
