The guidelines address the habitat needs at two Size: KB. Pileated woodpeckers are the largest of the common woodpeckers found in most of North America.

These crow-sized birds present a memorable sight with their zebra-striped heads and necks, long bills. Pileated woodpeckers mate for life, and may live as much as 10 years or more in the wild.

Once a nest cavity has been excavated and used by a pair to rear their young, it then becomes available to a host of other birds and mammals.

It took awhile to figure out what it was as I had never seen such a large and unusual strange bird. Using my bird book, I learned that only the male has the red mustache. Pileated woodpeckers occupy areas with mature, late successional forests that contain a lot of dead trees, or snags.

particularly those which have become infected with heart rot. They typically excavate one large nest each year in the cavities of these snags, thus creating habitat for other large cavity nesters as they move on to new nest sites.

The Pileated Woodpecker is, by far, the largest and most spectacular woodpecker left still alive in the United States, if the Ivory-billed Woodpecker is extinct.
