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.
A downy woodpecker feeds it’s fledgling suet from our feeder.
Favorite birds are the Goldfinches, which seems to grace our feeders on and off throughout the summer. In this video, a male and female pair share our feeder.
