Pileated woodpecker sex?

No, we didn't actually get that on film, but they were obviously doing a mating dance. Rich says..........."they are fornicating"!!! Oh, really, that's what you call it when birds do it? It isn't very exciting anyway, birds have to holes they match up and that's all there is to it. It is really awkward.

 Not sure the difference between the male and the female. I think he is darker and shinier and she has mottled feathering?

 Pretty awesome looking birds!!!
