The only Pileated shots I ever took was in 1980 in the Adirondaks. I may still have the B&W negs somewhere but B&W isn't able to show Woody in his full color. Same story for hummingbirds which were also shot on B&W years ago.
In 6 years in Oregon I've learned few birds visit Salem's suburbs. I suppose they're in the cropland surrounding us but I really only see birds camping in the mountains. Another possibility is that pesticides have reduced the avian populations.
I did see one hummingbird in 6 years but he never returned to a feeder I purchased. When I buy groceries I feed a loaf of bread to the parking lot gulls which for me has to pass for "birder photos".
