Birds in the Backyard: Pileated woodpecker moves in

Photo by David Walton

What a treat to live in the community of Lake Forest Park where one can photo a Pileated Woodpecker from one's house in one's yard. 

Notice this is a male because of the red mustache (red stripe) behind the mouth on the side of the head. 

The females have a black (rather than red) stripe in a similar place.
