My hubby and I have been feeding the birds for over forty years at least and only one time recently did we have a Pileated Woodpecker show up at our feeders. It only landed for a minute and was gone, not enough time to snap a photo. But Jean Dessellier has the magic touch at her bird feeders, because she said this guy has been hanging around there for awhile now and he seems to love their suet feeders. Jean added that they are fascinating birds. They sure are and part of the fascination I think is that they are quite shy and elusive most of the time. I love todayís shots, with Mr. Pileated doing a bit of acrobatics to get some of the suet from the feeder. Quite entertaining!

Bob Gilreath is another of those lucky bird feeders. He was able to capture a short video of the Pileated Woodpecker that has become a visitor at his feeders in Hubbell. Looks like Bobís visitor enjoys the suet feeder also.

We have a daily "PAIR" that visit our feeders, as a pair and individulay, this early Pre-Spring season. With the other woodpeckers, go through quite a bit of suet! Hope to see some young ones visiting soon.

Those are some dandy closeups of that Pileated. They are quite elusive creatures and it's always a treat to see one or a pair in action.

Good closeups indeed! These must be upside-down suet cakes.


Nice quiet video too.

I love these birds. We had them last year but not
once this year. We've basically had finches, &
some chickadees. It's been a very boring winter.
Nice to see they're still around.

THAT is so awesome! And you sure recognize them

Right you are George!! And here i forgot to wear purple today!

Impressive pictures and video of the pileateds! Thanks!


By Bob Gilreath (Bobg252) on Friday, March 17, 2023 - 10:03 am:

We actually have a nesting pair in the trees in our back yard


By Bob Gilreath (Bobg252) on Friday, March 17, 2023 - 10:07 am:

If you look closer at Jeans photos, she may have a pair also. Those

are 2 different birds in her shots. The male has the red band on the

lower jaw and the female does not.
