Pileated Wood Pecker

The Pileated woodpecker has been an rare guest of our bird feeder. You can imagine our surprise when a pair showed up the other day. They managed to scarf down the last bits of the suet along with helpings of sunflower seeds.

We are not sure if this is a mating pair or a mother and baby. Thorny Guy claims that one was feeding the other seeds. Have to research the behavior of these birds.
