Pileated Woodpecker

The Pileated Woodpecker is one of the biggest, most striking forest birds on the continent. It’s nearly the size of a crow, black with bold white stripes down the neck and a flaming-red crest. Look (and listen) for Pileated Woodpeckers whacking at dead trees and fallen logs. This particular fellow was very busy looking for grubs.

Another enviable and terrific series of photos of this shy bird! I've not seen any in several months, but I'm hoping they're around, they're a real treat to see!
