Pileated Woodpeckers

September 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

One bird that you can almost always count on seeing in South Florida, regardless of the season, is the Pileated Woodpecker. It is the largest woodpecker in North America, other than the (likely extinct) Ivory-billed woodpecker. 

I'm fortunate to see them frequently in my garden, and also in the nearby Riverbend Park. 

I was amused watching a pair investigating tree cavities and enlarging the holes as needed. Maybe they are preparing for nesting in the spring?
