Close-up female Pileated Woodpecker pecking and eating Carpenter Ants. The largest of North American Woodpeckers - they use their large head and long necks like a hammer to amazing effect and the noise sounds like someone hammering in this close up video. Always exciting to see these impressive birds I was fortunate enough to hear this one and get close while being screened by heavy brush - only about six feet off the ground I was able to get eye-to-eye with this amazing bird.
