Nesting pair of Pileated Woodys...

(Loxahatchee Florida USA)

We just purchased a 10 acre property with ALOT of dead pine trees. We had decided to cut down the trees and burn them. Fortunately, it was too COLD down here in SOUTH Florida last week to do so. We found out that we have a MATING & PRODUCING pair of Pileated Woodpeckers in one of the trees that needs to be cut down. I guess that tree isn't going anywhere anytime soon. We will NOT be cutting down that tree, or any of many others that have woodpecker holes in them. Since watching the newly found woodys, we have noticed at least 2 other species of woodpeckers in the yard. HOW EXCITING!! I just hope they don't take to pecking on the house or barn!
