|Pileated Woodpecker in American Holly|
Nestled in the branches devouring this wonderful midwinter snack is a Pileated Woodpecker. On Saturday Afternoon (2/22/2014) I spotted a pair of Pileated Woodpeckers both at the tree and a Northern Mockingbird. Several years ago I saw a flock of American Robins eating holly berries around the same time of year.
The Pileated Woodpecker is the largest woodpecker that can be seen at Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park. If you don't see it you are likely to hear it drumming. For more information on the Pileated Woodpecker go to http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/pileated_woodpecker/id
