Photography ~ Backyard Visitor

Pileated Woodpecker, female

I call this large female Pileated Woodpecker a visitor, but she and her mate appear to have moved in. They are the largest birds we have here regularly (about 16 1/2 inches),  besides an occasional visit from a hawk… then everyone scatters, including the squirrels. ~

ISO 1000, 1/250sec. f6.3.  600mm,  Nikon, cropped only. 

Thank you for visiting today. ~ terre

Photography: Birds

 

Hairy Woodpecker, USA (3)Here’s a little female Hairy Woodpecker, crooked beak and all, who has taken up residence at our house with her mate this winter. About anytime you look out you will see her. Have had other resident birds before, but not woodpeckers. Fun to watch and always learning. Maybe she had her beak where it shouldn’t have been? Happy day & birding~

Nikon D7200, ISO800, 1/500 sec, f/6.3, 600mm, no flash.
