I live in Horseheads NY(Elmira area) a large apple tree in my yard (16″ trunk) fell down in the winter but a large branch holding a large birdfeeder remained erect. So I continued to fill it and have been reluctant to chop up the tree I planted some 40 years ago. Today a huge woodpecker (But looked to large for a common woodpecker) began digging a huge hole in the base of the trunk and flinging chunks out of the hole. It appeared prehistoric but crisp red,black color, Huge size much bigger than and woodpecker I have seen. the picture of a Pileated woodpecker looks identical. (Male). I have some large birdfeeders 4ft square two layers with large roof and many small ones feeding primarily corn and black oil sunflower seeds and some suite. What a wonderful surprise.I see many birds but this was very unusual. I feed all year buy 50 pound bags, they re my friends.
