This Pileated Woodpecker decided to have some apples for dessert.ย This guy is the largest woodpecker commonly seen in North America.

    • I love woodpeckers, too…. except for the flickers (a smaller variety of woodpecker we have here) who used to tap on the bedroom wall and wake me at all hours) ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • About 3 years ago, I was living in a spot surrounded by a lot of tree farms, nearly surrounded by trees. Our property had some dead trees on it and I often heard these guys pecking away… a sound that’s pretty hard to miss. I could hear them, but only spotted one once working on a downed tree behind the house. This was the first time I managed to get a good look. They are lovely.


    • I used to hear them tapping away in the woods around our place in Myrtle Point, but only spotted one once on a dead tree out in the open. I was very surprised to see this guy pecking away at the apples in the neighbors yard. He didn’t seem to be bothered by me running in the house to grab the camera. That red top-notch is quite stunning.
