Yes, they are large. The adult birds are from
16-19 in tall and wingspan of perhaps
35 in....so yes they are large. I can't wait
to see the babies either....but so far they
have kept them well hidden.

My camera was on Movie Digest on Wed. the 8th the day the Pileated Wpkr was calling out so loudly. I wanted you to hear him and to see how he is never still for a photo so I uploaded it to You Tube - my first ever. You will hear me snapping shots and zooming as it was not a planned video- but you will also see and hear how exciting the photo op was.

Trops posted a link to his video of our
pileated woodpeckers changing places on
the nest and this shows just how it
happens: the Woodpeckers changing the guard.
If you blink your eye you miss how quickly the
other one slips right out and flies away.
Thank you, Trops!

Great Shot!
Do you or any of the folks that frequent here
know if users can upload a video?
I cant find any info on it on the
weatherunderground site.
I have a video of the woodpeckers, are we
allowed to post a link to the video on youtube ?

Perhaps he was checking me out too. At that rate
he was much closer and a bit above eye level for
me. Never seen it that close but then it flew.
Also past time for me to get on home to get
ready for Church and Sunday School.
