I have been very fortunate to have a few wonderful encounters and sightings of these large woodpeckers. They have now joined with other beasts in my fourteenth installment of ‘A Bestiary’ posted over at Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens. You can see more photos of these and other Pileated Woodpeckers and the stories that go with them by clicking HERE.
