Birds of the Sanctuary: Pileated Woodpecker
I feel quite privileged to have two pairs of these large, rare birds living on or adjacent to my property. I know where they are at any given time: I just listen for a sound much like a human tapping on a board with a hammer.
The male (below) has a larger red crest, as well as a red streak behind the beak.
