This Pileated woodpecker(female I think) was feeding at the house today. So I decided to do a portrait shot of her.

she and her portrait are beautiful. Guess it's not cold enough around here for them to come in to a feeder, as I see them in the woods, but not near the house. Guess you deserve some compensation for that wintery weather.

The snow is deep enough that the birds have some trouble finding food and seem content to feed at the house.

Pileateds have been feeding here for a few years now and seem to feel pretty safe when feeding here.

Thanks for the comments.

jodelak-- the male has a red streak extending out from the lower portion of his beak --where the female is black as shown by the above shot

Thanks for answering this question...I missed it. You are correct about the red streak on the beak.

Here's a shot that shows the male red streak on the beak.
