How do you capture a pileated woodpecker nesting high up in a tree? Professional wildlife photographer, Doug Gardner, teaches you how to photograph these beautiful birds in their natural habitat. In this video, Doug joins wildlife photographer Jared Lloyd for the planning and preparation it takes to photograph these birds.

You will join the experts in a camouflage blind to disguise their presence. You’ll learn about a lens filter that can change the way your camera frames the landscape. Doug and Jared demonstrate how to adjust for bird movements in changing light and Doug gives a lesson on composing your subject to adjust for background elements.

So tune in! Doug and Jared give you plenty of wildlife photography tips for shooting woodpeckers in their natural environment.
