This Pileated Woodpecker has been hanging out at my vineyard eating wine grapes. He seems to prefer the Zinfandel so at least it has good taste





Surveying the target zone

  NIKON D5    300.0 mm f/4.0 lens    420mm    f/5.6    1/800s    1400 ISO    +0.3 EV  







Is the coast clear??

Mmmmm Zinfandel!!

  NIKON D5    300.0 mm f/4.0 lens    420mm    f/5.6    1/640s    3600 ISO    +0.3 EV  







Busted, I'm outta here!!

Wish a Pileated would visit us. We have a grape arbor but only bees visit

Nice shots Frank. Everyone, including this bird, is having an early harvest

Nicely done Frank. Robins love our cherries and blueberries. I have had robins land in the top of the cherry tree to eat while I am picking cherries lower down ~ Ron

Thanks everyone for your comments. This guy comes back every year before harvest. His presence, antics and exotic calls make the loss of a few grapes more than worth it

Thank you all for your comments.
golfnphotog: you might try Pinot Noir down in your area to attract them. It's the "in" grape now

Nice job catching your visitor. Pretty cool that he's coming to your grapes. There are a number of them around where I live but they never come to the feeders.
