Great shots, Rob! I saw my very first pileated woodpecker yesterday, but didn't have my camera with me . Twice, I played some calls on my phone and twice it flew overhead looking for a rival.

Cheers... Brian

Thanks Brian.
Larry, a friend and avid birder whom I only knew briefly was diagnosed with a fatal disease but still wanted to see a Pileated Woodpecker. He received his wish before leaving this earth. Dedicated to Larry, a true gentleman.

@mambo: Charles, The reflection of the warbler looks great: sharp on the eyes.
And the goose doesn't look very healthy
@Robert: that's some great-looking woodpecker shots. Your friend couldn't wish much better

I think he was defending his territory from another male who had strayed too close to his missus.

Great captures, with the story making them even stronger.

Brian, Fred and all. The Pileated Woodpeckers were photographed at Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee NWR which is where Larry spotted his Pileated Woodpecker with bird author Richard Crossley and a small group including me. I sure wish he could have seen this family of birds. BTW, the images were taken on Sunday and I learned today that the youngsters fledged on Monday.

Indeed nice woodpeckers and the goose is a very special and unflattering pose. They sometimes do that when I get too close on my bicycle and I ususally just move away, never thinking to take a photo of this defense posture.

Here's a pigeon, judging by the rings on both legs probably a homing pigeon taking a small rest before moving on.
