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.
