Pileated Woodpecker?

by Linda

At Fort Harrison State Park I saw what I think were 6 Pileated Woodpeckers and was able to watch them for 25-30 minutes. I was sitting in a parked truck so I saw them at a distance of anywhere from 15 to 30 ft' as they moved about. Trees were without leaves. Birds were pecking at clusters of red berries, perhaps finding small insects. I saw them both in flight right in front of the windshield and sitting in the trees. Problem is that these birds had bright yellow on throats. Even took sunglasses off to be sure. I did not have a camera. What did I see? Thank you.
