    Comments: Species recently reported at this location by other ebird observers. I had stopped photographing a small bird in tree when I looked up and saw a large black and white bird flying from my left, then another one trailing a couple of seconds behind. I quickly raised the camera and was able to get an image of the second one, not entirely sharp but clearly showing the bulky woodpecker with distinctive large red pointed hood. I played a few Pileated Woodpecker calls from my phone and got responses from a distant tree. Then a few minutes later caught one flying from a nearer tree, apparently it had circled around looking for the source, got another few images of it from behind in flight, though no sharper or closer photos. Could not spot one perched to get a still photo, but the ID seems apparent.

    Comments: Species recently reported at this location by multiple ebird observers in recent weeks. My second observation of this species here in a few days, a more mature male bird that the previous one I recorded. I first saw it atop a tree going back and forth between branches every minute or two, a good ways out over the pond just before the 90-degree turn, where this bird had been located by others before. I could see the reddish coloration through lens magnification and knew this was the vermilion, though it was not a close look. I played a few Vermilion fc calls and it apparently responded, as it circled around and bounced back and fourth between wires and trees on both sides of me fairly close. I was able to get a few clear photos.
