I wasn’t a big fan of Woody the Woodpecker cartoons but I am a big fan of the woodpecker it was supposed to be. Pileated Woodpeckers are the largest woodpecker species in the Tallahassee area. I hear them almost every day and see them a lot. However, photographing them has been a challenge over the years. My closest encounters with them usually occur when I don’t have my camera. One let me get within 10 feet of it once! But, I didn’t have my camera. So, I’m on a mission to get a great Pileated Woodpecker picture. The one below isn’t that picture but it’s a start.
