Female Pileated Woodpecker

Granted this is not a great shot, but this bird has been on my bucket list after catching glimpses of it over the last two years. Only got a couple shots off and it was gone. Eastern Iowa is the edge of its range. The body of the Pileated Woodpecker is 16 to 19 inches, with a wingspan of 26 to 30 inches, so it is a big woodpecker.
Lake MacBride. Solon, Iowa.
