Pileated woodpeckers are impressive

(The video focuses quickly after it starts.)

We spotted this female Pileated woodpecker working over a large stump at a cemetery. She worked it for quite a while, and did not take off even when we got much closer. Perhaps she is used to lots of cars and people in the cemetery.

  2. My mother spoke of the pileated woodpecker in almost reverent tones. She saw them at the far end of our property and never anywhere else. When we moved to NC eight years ago, I was inordinately pleased to find a pair in the 200-year-old oak tree in our yard. I see them every once in a while and always think of my mom when I do.
