    1. Ha! 🙂
      I see that too. But usually there is only one that visits this tree – so on the day that these two visited together even though their backs were turned to each other they were closer than usual…Woodpeckers apparently are no “love doves” (pun intended).

  1. Wow, cool capture – not just one, but two pileated woodpeckers! They must be a mated pair as they don’t tolerate ‘strangers.’ Were they eating the fruit or looking for insects? Apparently, they will eat some fruit even though ants are their favorite food.

    1. Perhaps they are ‘newlyweds’ as this is the first time I’ve seen two. They were feasting on the crabapples – although this is a favorite tree for pecking also. I didn’t know they liked ants!

  2. Beautiful…Pileated woodpeckers are a bird I long to see in person! Once, I think I saw the silhouette of one in flight at dusk. They do love ants! Thank you for the pic.
