A beautiful red head

I heard this pileated woodpecker banging on the fallen log long before I saw him. He was right on the ground next to the parking lot at Chesnut Park. I sat down on the ground and watched him for a while. A few people passed by and he just glanced up and then kept on banging.That red stripe below the beak indicates that he’s a guy. He stayed busy for about 15 minutes. I finally got up and left him still going at it. He didn’t seem to be eating bugs under the bark. Later I stopped by there on my way out of the park and he was gone.

2 videos of him pecking on the wood. You would think they would get a headache.

Linking to Wednesday Around the World.
