A Bird Lovers Favorite Spotted In My Backyard

We were sitting in our family room the other day when my daughter sai9d “huh…that’s an interesting bird.”My husband David (who used to be a Park Ranger…..fun fact) looked outside and said it was a Pileated Woodpecker.

I saw my first one when my husband and I were walking through the woods up north, and this woodpecker was HUGE.  and since then I have become an avid fan of the Pileated Woodpecker.   They are a beautiful bird that are usually the size of a crow,but some can be bigger.   The Pileated Woodpecker can grow to around 19 inches in lengthen with a wingspan of up to 29 inches and weigh up to 12 pounds.   They are easy to spot with white stripes down its back and a flaming-red crest.  You will usually hear them before you see them.

I tried taking a video, but since you see no video here you can guess how that turned out.l  :(
