I saw this pileated woodpecker on one of our poplar trees today. In this picture it looks rather small but actually these birds have a foot long wingspan and their raucous call can be heard throughout the hamacka. This isn't a rare bird at all but it's quite a majestic sight to see filtering through the tree canopy. To be honest it's quite funny when all of our fowl mistake it for a hawk, they all duck and cover from a bird that eats insects, not chickens.
