Pic Description: He is on a White Pine in my back yard at Sand Bay on Bois Blanc. These are really big, as big as a crow.

Your camera is coming in handy! Great Mike! We have a couple of these in the woods out back.. They yell at me and Bean all the time. They won't come to the birdfeeder though..

I gotta vote for this one, especially since it's in MY yard, and the camera was my Christmas gift to Mike!

That IS an awesome photo... and perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to get that close with a camera in your hand. I looked at that photo for a month before I realized it was actually a real Pilleated.

You can't take this shot for granted. These critters are very shy and to get this kind of shot is rare. Way to go.
