Pileated Woodpecker


I took this photo on March 24, 2013. The woodpecker is chipping away at this wood tier by a pond searching for insects, ants and larvae. It frequents dead trees by coastal mudflats of Burrard Inlet in Vancouver, Canada.  In the Pacific Northwest it makes its home in forests by creeks, rivers and coastal forests.  Learn more about it  at the Wikipedia site
