Any idea what these are? We have some drummers at our place! Similar the the original photos posted by Jon, but no tuft on the head. We are in western Washington State. They are rather small in size (body probably 6-7" in length). Beautiful but annoying. They go for our downspouts very early in the morning. I have hung some plastic owls with yellow beady eyes on the porch and we haven't been awakened by drumming since!

I should like to stress that this thread has been hijacked and at no point did I admit or even suggest that I had done any flashing on anybody's chimney.

Maybe a Red Breasted Sapsucker?

Jon, I was going to post a pileated woodpecker on here so you would have one on this thread. It had swooped into our campsite as soon as we arrived in Door County, Wisconsin, but the photo would not upload. Just as well. I would probably find out that it is actually a sapsucker! I know you have seen some pileateds.

I was camped at Dry Falls State Park in WA & had a Northern Flicker that loved to drum on the lighting fixture just above my trailer, usually very early in the morning, and very loud. As to other birds, I have 3 pages of photos, including a Pileated Woodpecker.

Re: Pileated Woodpecker... had to jump in here. Taken in my backyard (upper nw NJ) a few years ago. When I saw it you could have knocked me over with a feather.
