Pileated woodpeckers

Recommended Posts

Awesome photo.

Pileated Woodpeckers are my arch enemy.   I live in a log house - they can peck a hole the size around of a tennis ball in a window frame in just a few minutes.   And they aren't easily scared off, without coming right back.

Your'e lucky to even have them. I've only seen pileated Woodpeckers once or twice in my whole life.

I have some new woodpeckers!  I just wanted to post that I have recently noticed either 2 or 3 Pilieated Woodpeckers on my property.  I still cannot tell if it is an adult pair with one chick or if it is one adult with two chicks.  Anyway, this is exciting for me because I have always wanted to observe these birds and I have never had the opportunity to watch them until now.  I use my iphone to play a call and it gets them excited.  They will respond to the recording on my phone and come closer to me to see if I am a woodpecker.  I hope they stay around for a while.  The habitat is pretty good for them since it very mature hardwoods in a bottom drainage area. It stays damp when it rains but it can dry out.   So far this year I have had Barred Owl, Red-Shouldered Hawks and now Pilieated Woodpeckers behind my house.  Very cool!
