“I have been lucky. The different places I have lived during the last four decades
have been in the realm of pileated woodpeckers. In my view, if pileated woodpeckers
live there, it must be a good place. This means having a reasonably significant tract
of forest with a variety of species and a large number of mature trees, including old
dead and dying individuals. These provide sources of food and places to nest. I regard
the pileated as the king of woodpeckers with its large size, striking black and white
plumage and red crown. The “king” has an entirely red crown and red moustache
while the “queen” has the back half of the crown red and a black moustache.”
