Pileated Woodpecker Photos

A long-time nemesis bird, finally captured!  There just are very, very few of these guys in South Dakota.  Perhaps it's because you actually need trees to have them!  I'd seen them on occasion when traveling in the East, but it took a trip to DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge on the Nebraska/Iowa border to get a photo of one.
