Pileated Woodpecker and Shemp of the 3 stooges


(Ohio near Richmond Indiana)

I have at least 4 pileated woodpeckers that come several times to my suet feeder each day.


I mean you can hear them coming a mile off they sound like Shemp on the Three Stooges; "yepppppppppppp" when they are flying to my feeder!

That's a great description of their nasal yelp and wok calls. They are rather like Shemp!
