Pileated Woodpecker 2

Yesterday the Pileated Woodpeckers returned to their demolition stump (see yesterday’s post). After feeding on the ground, the woodpeckers flew to the top of nearby trees to enjoy a dessert of Hackberry berries. Several times before, I witnessed this feeding behavior by Pileateds. This meal becomes quite an acrobatic act! I have also seen Red-bellied Woodpeckers feeding on Hackberries.
