Nature is Awesome - The pileated woodpecker

Finlayson Island, in the North Saskatchewan River near Battleford, is often visited by the Pileated Woodpecker. These are colourful birds and you can often hear them drumming on a tree before you actually see them. From head to tail, they are about 16-19 inches long. They like to visit trees that are infested with insects, which often have woodpecker holes that are used for nesting. Design all around.
