When I first started my adventures in birding, the first time I ID’d a Pileated was when one was eating apples in a neighbor’s yard on apple trees that had apples throughout the wintertime. It kept coming back, much to my delight. The remembrance always makes me grin….

I lived many years in Pennsylvania and our Pileated Woodpeckers would really go after the dogwood berries behind our home - hanging upside down a lot. In between feeding on large pieces of suet straight from the slaughterhouse.
