Not much could entice me from the relative warmth of our house and into the, still -10F noontime, cold. But a pair of pileated woodpeckers flew into our yard and I was compelled to jump out briefly, and gloveless, for a couple minutes to attempt a photograph or two. Their situations were not ideal, but I did manage a couple shots at close range and it was a welcome relief, as I have not captured a bird for quite a while.

Beautiful, Allan. Glad that you could get some shots. Nice perspective in the first and still get the eye.

I'd have to give a slight edge to the first shot on interesting perspective alone. Both are print worthy, fantastic exposures. Excellent work Allan.

Worth braving the cold. These are really good, especially the first one!

It is very cold, windy and snowing now where I live, these shots have inspired me to "attempt" some bird shooting soon. These are Excellent of a bird that continues to elude me.Very well done!

Absolutely stunning.
I scarcely believe how close you got for these shots.
Ours are so skittish, I feel fortunate to just hear one in the distance.
Fabulous captures, Allan
