pictures by famed wildlife photographer Doreen Orciari. She hosts these dandies at her home.Note the telltale rectangular holes carved out by the Pileated. Carpenter Ants for brunch washed down with a few hackberries mayhap? Primal!!
Why not rename the Paleo diet
(no legumes,grains, or dairy)
the Pileated (Woodpecker) diet
& ditch that low-slung brow for a flame-red crest.
Carpenter ants, wood-boring beetle larvae, termites, budworm, caterpillars, cockroaches;
w/ greenbrier, hackberry, sassafrass,berries,poison ivy, holly, dogwood, persimmon, and elderberry.
Plus an outdoor lifestyle.
Even the WHACK of their chisel beaks cries PALEO-ALT!
