The eagle ears of Pat Thorne led her to capturing this stunning image.
"A knock, knock, knocking in the woods nearby drew my attention. There were two Pileated Woodpeckers feasting on larva in a decaying old spruce tree. These 17 inch long woodpeckers, with a long red crest are usually very adept at keeping out of sight. If they had not been tapping away I would have passed right by them."
Thank you Pat for sharing your amazing artwork with our readers.
