[Tweeters] Who's that knocking at my door?

Yesterday (Sunday) we arrived early at our church (Seattle Wedgwood area). I unlocked and started the coffee. When I went up to the foyer I heard a sound -- a strong thump. Then thump, thump. It sounded like someone slowly pounding near our front door. Who would do that? I looked through the door window -- nothing. Thump. Thump. Way too loud and slow to be a flicker.

I opened the door and looked to my right, then up. The outline of a large crested bird. A pileated woodpecker!

Trying to dismantle our roof!

We've seen them in Seattle before but not in this area. It hung out in the trees for awhile.
