Feathered Visitor

 Monday, Dan called me before breakfast to come look at the woodpecker he'd spotted on a tree bordering our driveway.  It was a pileated woodpecker hard at work drilling holes to feed on insects. 

I knew I couldn't open the door to take a photo and had to try through the window - not very successfully.  I tried two different cameras in fact. The first didn't get the colors right or focus and the second couldn't focus on the moving bird. Later I went out to take the photos of the tree.

Any suggestions on how I could have had a better photographic capture?
