We were out on the deck enjoying the great weather Memorial Day weekend when we heard the sounds of something being tossed around behind the house. I thought based on the noise it must be a bear looking for grubs among the rotting logs but I was wrong. It was a super size Pileated Woodpecker (Hylatomus pileatus)! He was hidden behind scrub trees and my telephoto was not long enough but I did manage to get some usable shots and a short video.
