Pileated woodpecker

We’ve had some fine bird viewing this winter. We serve a late lunch most days to pileated woodpeckers. One male, one female. You can tell, by his red mustache, that this is the male. The suet paddle feeder is their favorite lunch spot. That’s a hairy woodpecker on the log feeder and a black-capped chickadee flying in for seeds.

It was a snowy day, with high winds. The night was wicked, with rain, heavy sleet, then snow and plummeting temperatures. Maybe our food helped some make it through the tough night.
