This Tree Taste Really Weird To Me?!

F/6.3, 1/160, ISO 320.

Pileated Woodpecker

Why did the belt go to jail?

Because it held up a pair of pants!

Interesting Fact: The Pileated Woodpecker digs characteristically rectangular holes in trees to find ants. These excavations can be so broad and deep that they can cause small trees to break in half. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Pileated_Woodpecker/lifehistory )

  1. I’ve seen a couple of these guys in the yard, whacking the heck out of a mulberry tree. They are faster than a chainsaw! Great shot!

  2. I love this kind of stuff. Pileated woodpeckers are frigging huge….and loud, like jackhammer loud, but it makes me only love them more. Peace, Harlon

    • Yes he is. I have been trying for months to come across one and finally I did. I wasn’t even planning on seeing one in that area, It was very exciting for me. Thank you very much for stopping by and Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚
