I thought that was a Northern flicker until I saw your caption.  Now that I look closer it is a bit different, but quite similar.  I don't think we have these guys in the NW.  The woodpecker family is quite interesting.  up.gif

This was taken about 1/2 way between Lena Lake and the Valley of Silent Men.  Such a beautiful stretch of forest!!!

Yeah. I've seen (and been able to distinguish) four species of Woodpeckers here that I can remember: the Hairy Woodpecker, the Downy Woodpecker, the Red-bellied Woodpecker, and the amazing Pileated Woodpecker. The other two in our parts of the US (that I can't remember seeing) are the Yellow Sapsucker and the Northern Flicker. The Red-bellied Woodpecker pictured above is female: the male doesn't have that grey forehead, its red stripe runs along the entire head.

Here's a puffed up Blue Jay from yesterday:

It sure is a beautiful forest. Too bad the Forest Service decided not to replace the bridge to get to the Valley of Silent Men.

I'd love to see that photo in the calendar contest this year. I could stare at it for a month!  biggrin.gif

Me too! Besides being luscious, it captures the "come hither" quality of a trail that promises much.

neek,
Fantastic angles on those herons!

Mike,
What is the animal? a fox? Nice observations!

Galiwalker,
Quite an ornithography! I especially like the Puffed-Up Blue Jay, the Staring Grackle, and the Woodpecker with chopsticks.

I love these bird shots with the shallow DOF and smooth bokoh.
But I am confused. The photos with the red tree leaves appear as if they are on the ground but that can't be this time of year. Are the red leaves from Laceleaf Maple? (they tend to grow a thick outer layer like that).

I have lived in the NW for a long time and have seen many Western Flickers but I was shocked when we started seeing Pileated Woodpeckers here.
