Pilated Wood Pecker

Recommended Posts

"Pileated"

Pronounced a couple different ways...……..most commonly "Pill-ee-ayy-ted"

All I know is they are a beautiful bird and I wish someone had a good recipe for them, because I'd about like to shoot every one I saw...….   They blow holes through GOOD, standing timber better than a mortar from a tank.  Especially hard on cherry and sassafras. All the other woodpeckers drill dead trees looking for bugs.  Pileateds just blow holes in good timber trees for the heck of it.  My dad hated them with a PASSION.

Pecans and apples here.  Too bad there is not a season on them, they are very destructive.
