I have since contemplated cutting it down while I could still manage the job myself.
This morning, while walking the boxer, the woodpeckers have returned. A quick pound-pound and a flurry of wings. Then a fluttering settling of wings and the peeking around the neighbor's boxelder, "Is she gone?"
I didn't capture them myself. The obvious answer was, "No, here she comes with that soul-stealing thingee! Fly!!"

So I saw a pair of these pileated woodpeckers. As much as I like to see these guys, I do hope they don't totally destroy the cambrium layer of my pine!
