Rarely Seen Pileated Woodpecker Photogtraphed at Maintenance Facility

I was lucky enough to catch a few pictures outside the maintenance facility yesterday.

CT DEP Says...
Pileated Woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus)

Description: The pileated woodpecker is the largest woodpecker found in Connecticut (16-19 inches). It has a solid black back and a conspicuous red crest extending from its forehead to its nape. Males are larger than females and they have a red forehead, red crest, and scarlet mustache. Females have the red crest but a black forehead and black mustache.
