Video of the Day

I have discovered that the videos do not appear on the blog when using an iPad.
  Pileated Woodpecker -- Horsecove; Gurley, Alabama:  This video was taken in 2007, when a Pileated Woodpecker nested in my front yard.  I shot over a hundred hours of video and hundreds of still photos.  I have always been fascinated with woodpeckers, and could not believe my good fortune to have a pileated nest in my front yard (only 250 feet from my front door steps).  To see  a still image of the male with nestlings go to the May 6, 2010 Pic of the Day post (click here:  The video was taken with a digital  Sony Mini-DVcamcorder.


  1. Love this video! also the still photo of the pileated wp on your blog.

  2. Thank you Jayne! I loved the time I spent photographing the Pileated. I was hot, sweaty, and miserable, but enjoyed every minute in the blind.
