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.
This is a very big bird….about 12” tall. Very beautiful
I took these pictures from the video at the end.
I am sure there is one nesting in an old tree out back.
