Surprise in the Mail

Look at this beauty who was hammering away at the pine tree right next to our mailbox yesterday.

Pileated Woodpecker

She was only about six feet up in the tree and as you can see from the next photo, really close to our next door neighbor’s house and the street’s mailbox.

She was completely engrossed in what she was doing. While we were taking pictures, another neighbor walked up the street to get her mail. She kept on drilling, pausing ocassionally to tilt her head to the side and peer into the hole she’d made.

    Wow that’s so awesome, and you got great photos of her! Sometimes when I check my mail a moth flies out of the mailbox. Not quite as exciting.
