Guest in our Tree

So the other day, we heard a knocking sound outside and found this guy in our front tree. The photos don't do it justice, because I'm not kidding when I say that this woodpecker was ENORMOUS. He was easily a foot long. He was big enough to make the kids shriek in surprise. It makes me wonder what kind of bugs we have in that tree!!

Looks like a Red Pileated Woodpecker and quite a large one. Lucky you to see one right in town!
