Pileated Woodpecker!

CF2C7381-001The Pileated Woodpecker is a rare treat and a great find.  Observed this Pileated in the Ward Reservation in Andover as it moved among many of the the tree trunks around open and still swamp water.  The Pileated is the largest woodpecker in North America and is easily identified by its oversized bright red crest.  The Pileated remains on territory year round!
