Pileated Woodpecker Feeding Time

Submitted by on June 15, 2011 – 11:16 amNo Comment

Watch an adult male Pileated Woodpecker feed his young one in this short video.

You can tell the adult Pileated Woodpecker is a male by the red stripe on his cheek. On females this stripe is black.

The Pileated Woodpecker is the largest woodpecker in North America. The bird is nearly 2 feet tall with a wingspan of almost 3 feet. I’m very grateful to see them in my backyard on my suet feeder. I can’t wait until the young ones show up!
