Pileated Woodpecker 4.23.10

I have seen this Pileated Woodpecker in the driveway several times. I toss Babe’s (my Lovebird) oyster shell out there for the birds to pick over. I wonder if that’s what she’s after.Pileatedcs

This is a very big bird….about 12” tall. Very beautifulPileated3cs


I took these pictures from the video at the end.

I am sure there is one nesting in an old tree out back.


  1. I could be getting those shells. Cute video. You did good to follow it with your camera. Helen

  2. My brother told me he has one of these coming to their suet feeder. I have never had such luck. Thanks for sharing with us!

  3. He's handsome with that red crown. A lovely bird.
    Enjoyed the video too.

  4. Lovely video. We don't get the Pileated Woodpecker here so I enjoyed seeing him.

  5. Lovely! Here in Sri Lanka is a kind with the whole back the red color of your Woodie's crown,but much smaller a Pecker.

  6. Hi,the woodpecker that I mentioned earlier,I've got one on video. Could you spare a moment to watch it here?
