female pileated woodpecker

i was watching the little birds at the feeder (chickadees and the not-so-little thrushes) get crowded out by the northern flicker who stopped in. then with one big swoop, this pileated woodpecker stole the show - and the food. if you are not familiar with them, they are about 16 in long.
