Ivory-Billed Woodpecker OR Pilated Woodpecker ?? The Ivory-billed woodpecker is the largest woodpecker in North America other than the imperial woodpecker of Mexico which is feared to be extinct. The Pileated Woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus) is the second largest and is surprisingly common in many parts of the United States, including all areas formerly inhabited by ivory-bills. If you are seeing a large black-and-white woodpecker, it is important to carefully examine the field marks and behavior to distinguish between these superficially similar species.

Pileated Woodpeckers raise their young every year in a hole in a tree. In April the hole made by the male attracts a female for mating and raising their young. Once the brood is raised, the Pileated Woodpeckers abandon the hole and will not use it the next year. When abandoned, these holes—made similarly by all woodpeckers—provide good homes in future years for many forest song birds. Ecologically, the entire woodpecker family is important to the well being of many other bird species.
Red-bellied Woodpecker wants dog food?? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42jRYe... The Red Bellied Woodpecker is a medium-sized woodpecker of the Picidae family. It breeds in southern Canada and the northeastern United States, ranging as far south as Florida and as far west as Texas. Adults are mainly light grey on the face and underparts; they have black and white barred patterns on their back, wings and tail. Adult males have a red cap going from the bill to the nape; females have a red patch on the nape and another above the bill. The reddish tinge on the belly that gives the bird its name is difficult to see in field identification. They are 9 to 10.5 inches long, and have a wingspan of 15 to 18 inches.
