I had never heard of this type nor seen until this was on our bird feeder one day. I about broke my neck trying to run up stairs and get my cell phone to take a photo before it flew away. I didn't think anyone would believe me when I said it was a woodpecker on steroids.
Turns out it is a Pileated Woodpecker. I just never heard of it prior.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have been a scrapper forever and started cards in '87. Now I can't imagine doing one without the other or not having this creative outlet in my world. I live in Wisconsin, have 2 boys and 4 cats and have an obsession with tigers. In '04 I was diagnosed with Chiari and had to make a career change. So I turned my hobby into a business and opened a store in my hometown in '04 and eventually bought a larger store in '06 and combined the two. I love sharing my creative passion with others.
