Change of pace. Thought this may be of interest to some of you. Took two photos with a telescopic lens, then tried getting closer to this bird but he was too wary and fled. Zooming in gives a relatively decent view.

You are correct in that this is non fungal, but it is Dryocopus pileatus, aka pileated woodpecker. I posted this to break the winter doldrums and thought that some would be interested in it.
