Birds & Wildlife Pileated Woodpecker Sunday, January 17, 2016 8:58 am GS Pileated Woodpecker seen in backyard 01-17-16 I’ve wanted to see this bird for years! A true beauty, must have inspired the character Woody Woodpecker. There were a pair, a male and female. The above is a male. Below is the female Pileated woodpecker which I was able to get one photo of.
