Pileated Woodpecker

We all know the familiar sound of the woodpecker as it goes about its day, hammering into dead wood, looking for something to eat. The Pileated Woodpecker is a natural predator of carpenter termites and is a good addition to your yard if you want to keep such pests at bay. Additionally, the cavities this bird carves often become nesting places for other birds you may enjoy having around.
