Pileated Woodpecker

On our walk home, we spotted this beautiful woodpecker. This was the closest we have ever gotten to one, so we watched him hunt insects for quite awhile. It was amazing how far he swung his head back and forth.. It was comical.

Afterwards, we came home and read about them. We liked this informative page, it is clear and outlines everything easily. http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Pileated_Woodpecker/lifehistory

This is a much better video we found online where you can actually see the grubs this woodpecker is eating.
