Mom would come and go to feed them, but she was quick and I never got a good one of her with the babies, alas.

With an estimated almost 2 million breeding pairs and a huge range, the majestic pileated is hardly rare; but they are rarely seen due to their timid and solitary natures, and their preference for deep forest. If all you catch is a glimpse in flight, they can be readily identified by their swoop-then-glide-then-swoop-again flying pattern. And if you see one adult, you should look around for the other, for breeding pairs often travel and feed together. I see them fairly frequently here in the White Mountains, and it is always a wonderful sight!

Great photo! We have had a pair nesting near our house for several years. I hear them much more often than I see them. But once you've heard their call I doubt you will ever forget it. They are loud and sound like something from the rain forest.
