I was washing dishes a little while ago and heard a sound I'd not heard in quite a few years...grabbed my DSLR, sneaked out the side gate and around the house and there he was--a Pileated Woodpecker looking for a snack in one of our neighbor Matt's oaks! It's been a long time; I hope he plans on staying around.
Update: 22 May 2016 I've seen our woodpecker friend twice since first posting this. He appears to live in the trees across and down the road a few hundred yards, and ranges the entire neighborhood. No sign yet of a mate, though I remain optimistic!
