Pileated Woodpecker

This large beautiful bird is a frequent visitor in Calabogie.

I did this watercolour from a photograph I took last summer.

Many trees in the area bear the marks of  their foraging.

These photographs are of a tree that I can see from the window of my cottage.  A Pileated  Woodpecker visited this tree and one nearby  frequently  earlier this winter.
