Site : Estrie region, Quebec, Canada

Date : 2005-02-20

Notes : This was my first observation of a pileated woodpecker. I heard it from quite a distance, and could approach it slowly through the woods facing Parc Blanchard, until I was very well placed to photograph it. What a thrill! Canon 10D, 100-400L at 400mm, f/6.3, 1/100s, iso 200, Flash 550ex, hand held.
