About six hours later as I was sitting at my computer I saw something fly by the sunroom window. My mind barely registered the flash of black and red before I grabbed my camera and went to my living room window. Sure enough I spotted him. He was too far away for a decent shot so this one through a very dirty window was the best I could do. If you enlarge the image you'll notice the red stripe on the cheek signifying the male pileated.
Linking to Wild Bird Wednesday.
