[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's one from my archive in November of 2006.
This is the male with the red mustache. The female has a black one.


Pileated Woodpecker: Feeds on insects such as ants and wood boring beetle larvae; also eats fruits and nuts. Pries off long slivers of wood to expose ant galleries, or uses its long, pointed tongue with barbs and sticky saliva to catch and extract ants from tunnels.

note: cropped, focused and brightened

Hi Trevor,

Great profile on this giant of the woodpeckers. The sharp focus & gender feature in protoypical habitat make this a winning composition, TFS
