Pileated Woodpecker

Pileated woodpeckers nests across the state where ever the hardwood forests are mature enough to support a pair's territory (53-160 ha). Since they are territorial year around, pileateds can be placed on territory easily. Their loud call makes them easy to hear over long distances. However, an atlaster can spend a lot of time trying to follow this bird to find the nesting hole.
