Southern pileated woodpecker, female

Dryocopus pileatus pileatus


Pileated Woodpeckers will often chip out large and roughly rectangular holes in trees while searching out insects, especially ant galleries. They also will lap up ants by reaching with their long tongue into crevices and sometimes forage on or near the ground.
