Awkward pose for this stately Pileated Woodpecker. I've never seen one on the suet feeder before. Maybe he's feeding young and that's tempting him to go for the fast food.

Belinda calls him the prehistoric bird for his resemblance to a Pteradactyl. She's thinking of mounting a suet feeder on a tree so he can get at it more easily. I think he should have to work a bit for this fatty snack.

I hear ours ringing in the woods but rarely catch a glimpse. I wish they'd come to the feeder!

We leave lots of dead trees for them around the yard. Not to mention the actual log house. That's a problem.
