Info on the Pileated Woodpecker

Description: 17" (43cm). A crow sized woodpecker. Black with white neck stripes, conspicous white wing linings, and prominent red crest. Moustache is red in male, black in female.

Voice: A loud, flicker like, cuk-cuk-cuk-cuk, and rising and then falling in pitch and volume.

Habitant: Mature forests and borders…..Nesting: 4 white egs in a tree cavity ( in this case a Hydro Pole).

Resident from British Columbia east across Canada to Nova Scotia, south to California, Southern Idaho, Eastern North Dakota, Central Texas, and Florida.

Footnotes: Despite its size, this elegant woodpecker is often shy and hard to observe. Obtaining a close view of one is often requires careful stalking. Although primarily a forest bird, the “Logcock” has recently become adapted to civilization and has become relatively numerous even on the outskirts of large cities, where its presence is most easily detected by its loud, ringing call and by its large, characteristically rectangular excavations in trees..
