 Pileated Woodpecker
02-JAN-2013 Carl Erland

Pileated Woodpecker

Southern Vancouver Island

Interesting fact: The Pileated Woodpecker prefers large trees for nesting. In young forests, it will use any large trees remaining from before the forest was cut. Because these trees are larger than the rest of the forest, they present a lightning hazard to the nesting birds. ~ All About Birds
