Artist's Description

Nearly as large as a crow, the Pileated Woodpecker is the largest woodpecker in most of North America. Its loud ringing calls and huge, rectangular excavations in dead trees announce its presence in forests across the continent. It may not look like he’s looking directly at me, but he is. Just not with both eyes. The next time you see a bird taking a close look at something, notice how it turns its head sideways. This is because eyes in most bird species lie at the sides of their heads, and bird eyeballs can’t be rolled like human ones. Therefore, when most birds look closely at something, they use only one eye at a time, and they must turn their heads. This was taken on a roadside in Rockaway, NJ with a Kodak Z712 IS digital camera.
