Miniature Painting - No 7 - Pileated Woodpecker

Miniature painting No 7, a beautiful pileated woodpecker.

5"x7" oil on Gessobord

This lovely bird was photographed on my own bird feeder in my backyard. There are plenty of pileated woodpeckers in the area here (I hear them a lot) but they're hard to spot in the trees, and it's rare for them to land on a feeder. They are such timid birds they'll fly away at the first sight of you, even if you're pretty far away. I was lucky enough to sneak up on this guy from inside the house and get a shot at him through the window. I think the reflection on the window must have hid me from his view.
