Pileated Woodpecker

One of the Woodpeckers that I have been stalking for a couple of years and I have been unable to photograph is the Pileated Woodpecker. Or should I say "was unable". When I was out on my walk near the Potomac River at Dykes Marsh park I saw what looked like a small grouse near a fallen tree. When I walked close enough, I realized that it was a large Woodpecker. But bonus, there was actually 2 Pileated Woodpeckers working on the log. I was able to get a picture of both.

Pileated Woodpecker #2

The Pileated Woodpecker will be added to my list as it is
a permanent resident to Northern VA.
