This guy is huge. He's been around several times and I believe we read he is a Woodland Woodpecker. He's huge!!! My poor other birds and tiny red headed woodpeckers hide when he's around. A beautiful bird so I wanted to share my pictures
My new visitor - woodland woodpecker ?
never heard of Woodland Woodpecker??
Looks like a Pileated to me
Great - thanks! My husband was looking in a book and he said they stay in the woodlands and are rarely seen in towns/neighborhoods. I misunderstood. A very cool bird!
Thanks for giving me the name.
if there are pine trees around you will see them from time to time especially if you have any kind of berries on your trees or shrubs
Congrats Shihtzumom on your new visitor the Pileated wp. Gosh, I've been wishing upon the stars for many years to have one visit. Though, alot of trees, in the area. But it's due to an open area near a lake, they would not frequent such "openess". I'm thrilled for you.
