Wait for it…

Audubon California


GoPro camera catches a unique view of a pileated woodpecker on a suet feeder.

Wow, what a great catch with the GoPro. Have you ever seen a Pileated Woodpecker? If not then maybe you have heard one. Its drumming is very loud, especially if one happens to be on the side of your house doing that drumming. Most often though it sounds like someone striking a tree very quickly with a hammer. They are very cool birds with their big red heads. The only difference in the markings between the adult males and females is that the males have a red line from the bill to the throat (as you see in the video) and in adult females these are black. It is also the largest woodpecker in America almost the size of a crow. They are the Woody Woodpecker of cartoons.
