Bird Pic Of The Week

Pileated Woodpecker

(Dryocopus pileatus)

Where: Newport News, VA • Museum Drive Trail

Notes: Of the many Blessings life bestows upon us, I occasionally under appreciate the gift of connectivity. When one encounter with one person connects me to another and then that to another… That process is how I was led to the opportunity to witness and share this beautiful interaction of a parent caring for its offspring. A few hours of patience paid off as I stood motionless (as possible), covered in my best camouflage. These large foot and a half long woodpeckers favor mature deciduous forests where they forage for wood-boring beetle larvae, ants, fruits, nuts, and berries. Pileateds typically drill their nest holes in a tall dead tree within the forest interior. The males drill the hole and then it is used to attract a female. The hole is only used for one year. So in following years, other animals utilize the vacated cavity. Thus, woodpeckers are an important group of birds, because the provide future housing sites for many song birds plus a wide variety of other animals as well.
