We had a pair of pileated woodpeckers visit us this past month! Pileated woodpeckers are pretty rare. They are the woody woodpecker type of woodpecker with its big red mohawk. The things are HUGE. Adults can be between 16 and 19″ tall. DANG. Think about that for a minute.
I’m grateful that we happened to be glancing out the window when they came through. Yet another bird to check off in our peterson’s guide! (thanks Mykal!!)
