New Visitor in the Woods

We have spotted this Pileated Woodpecker off our deck the last three mornings.  It shows up while I'm eating breakfast.  It's been fun to watch it drill holes and then eat (or drink?) whatever it's finding inside.  I've never seen one in this area before. 


  1. Great pictures. I'm pretty sure they only eat carpenter ants and their larvae.

  2. Freakin' awesome! These guys are in my top 4 of favorite birds...osprey, belted kingfishers, and gannets....not necessarily in that order

    PS-you should run the 10K this sunday

  3. Sweet photos Jonny! I like Bentley's bird list. He has a thing for piscivorous birds.

  4. Greg - I hope you're right - way too many carpenter ants around here.

    Justin - crazy week for me - I'm not goig to run the race - we still need to talk about our next adventure run.

    Glenn - Sarah liked your big word. I wasn't sure what it meant!
