Male Pileated Woodpecker
Photograph - Digital Photography
This male pileated woodpecker was looking for carpenter ants in this rotted log on Drummond Island in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. He allowed me to get fairly close to him and then posed nicely.
The Pileated Woodpecker is one of the biggest, most striking forest birds on the continent. It’s nearly the size of a crow, black with bold white stripes down the neck and a flaming-red crest. Look (and listen) for Pileated Woodpeckers whacking at dead trees and fallen logs in search of their main prey, carpenter ants, leaving unique rectangular holes in the wood. The nest holes these birds make offer crucial shelter to many species including swifts, owls, ducks, bats, and pine martens.
