Pileated Woodpecker With 3 Chicks by Sandra Rust

[the_ad id="58360"]

Pileated Woodpeckers are quite vocal, typically making a high series of piping calls that lasts several seconds. The sound is quite similar to a Northern Flicker's rattling call. I heard and then noticed the female Pileated Woodpecker near me. She landed in a tree and I started taking photos, when I heard the chicks and saw 3 beaks open up to get fed. It was so adorable. The female looked a bit thin, and tired looking. I could not imagine feeding, and raising 3 chicks on ants, insects, etc.
