Downtown Lexington, SC.  March, 2020.

I obviously have other PIWOs shots, but these two flew in, feuding, as I got out of the car to order lunch that day.  And then the bee landed on the back of my neck, stung when I swatted, and it was Epipen time and a trip to the ER.

Did they manage to save the bee at the ER???

I have seen a ton of these and they are often cooperative for photos. I have a lot to choose from in my easy to find Woodpecker folder. I know I have even more but I was too lazy to look in my dated folders. The dated folders contain thousands of photos so no easy task.

I've never gotten a decent photo of one. (I've personally never found @Charlie Spencer to be very photogenic). Ironically, the photo below was taken here in Sacramento, two light poles down from my house.

Wow! That's a crazy good bird! Are you in Sacramento County itself? Or are you out in the foothills in Placer, Amador or EL Dorado counties. I'm asking because there are ZERO Pileated Woodpecker records for Sac County, so that would be the first county record!

I'm in the city of Sacramento itself, in North Sac. I took this in Oct 2012, two light poles down from my house. I thought it was odd to see a Pileated in town, though there are quite a few trees around here. Never thought about it being any kind of record, though......

That is a weird place for a Pileated! Certainly not where I would expect the first county record to show up!

I'd highly recommend getting it reported to ebird.
