Pileated Woodpecker

Pileated Woodpecker...surveying the landscape. I have known there were Pileated woodpeckers in the area...but I feel so honoured to have this female pay me a visit!

They really seem to like carpenter ants that infest rotting wood. I see them often pecking in decaying stumps. I really enjoyed your catching the take off!

We live an hour north of Montreal, Quebec, in the mountains and have the pleasure of being visited by a Pileated Woodpecker couple, about 4 years ago. We have been very lucky to now get regular visits, sometimes as early as late March!

At first they were extremely shy, but now they seem used to us & we get them all summer long. I believe it’s always the same couple? They are truly spectacular!
