Liam's favorite bird...The Pileated Woodpecker is one of the biggest, most striking forest birds on the continent. They dig characteristically rectangular holes in trees to find ants. These excavations can be so broad and deep that they can cause small trees to break in half. (Photo: Hal and Kirstin Snyder),,,they live in the woods behind me and I've had them come to the feeder on the deck. <3
