Sightings: Pileated woodpecker

How can you tell a boy Pileated Woodpecker from a girl?
John Tschop captured these shots yesterday, thanks to an accommodating model who dropped by the house. The red spot below the beak marks this visitor as a male.
John also advises local birders that the hop field sin the upper valley are currently a good spot to sight mountain bluebirds.
