Banging on a tree

It’s always fun to see a pileated woodpecker.

The coolest bird ever, creeping up the tree.

Only the male has the red stripe on his check.

High up on a dead tree.

I was walking through the trails at Chesnut park pretty quickly. Not many birds out but the weather was perfect. I’m heading back to my car thinking this trip was going to be a bust and the above comes whizzing by me and lands in a tree right in front of me. He spent a few minutes banging on a tree and then took off.
