He’s hard to see, but look for that stylish red fob on his head in the center of the tree. Pileated Woodpecker lunching on the best carpenter ants in Northwest CT. Pounding away.

Pounding.

The Pileated is at our favorite carpenter ant tree,

arming himself for mating season & child-rearing.

Positive efforts, unlike the those of the US weapons industry.

Pounding.
