P is for Pileated Woodpecker for ABC Wednesday round 9

This latge, noisy bird is always exciting to see!
And one day I saw not only one, not only two but three all together on the trunk of a tree! What an exciting sighting this was!
As fascinating as this large woodpecker is, almost equally as delightful is the finding of a tree which bears evidence of Pileateds having been feeding on.. . The oblong holes in the tree trunk shown above were made by PIleated Woodpeckers having been feeding there.

I'm always thrilled if I see even one! Seeing three is terrific! Wow! They do make the largest holes in trees.

Awesome captures of the Pileated woodpeckers. The holes in the trees are neat, I have seen them around my woods too.

Triple the pileated pleasure! The trees with multiple holes look like giant flutes!
