Probably living in the Knox County woods near you, whether you notice or not, the Pileated Woodpecker is a very large North American woodpecker, roughly crow-sized, inhabiting deciduous forests in eastern North America. It is also the largest woodpecker in the United States. They live in wooded areas of Knox County. Their call is a loud, far carrying laugh, sounding like a jungle bird call. Adult males have a red line from the bill to the throat, in adult females these are black. These birds mainly eat insects, especially carpenter ants and wood-boring beetle larvae. They also eat fruits, nuts, and berries, including poison ivy berries. Pileated Woodpeckers will often chip out large and roughly rectangular holes in trees while searching out insects, especially ant galleries.

They have always been a favorite bird for me. Love that junglefied call and the flash of color and undulating flight between trees.

Have seen several but have yet to get close enough for a good publishable shot.... The two I get a lot of shots of are the Downey Woodpecker and the Red Bellied Woodpecker...
