Pileated Woodpecker




So excited to see this large handsome fellow in my yard on January 26th! First Pileated Woodpecker on the property since we moved here 15 years ago. The picture is not very clear. He was high up on a snag and he kept circling around. Just had to sketch him! Prismacolor pencils.
