Pileated Woodpecker


I remember as a boy seeing a Pileated Woodpecker.  I think it was in Michigan.  He had that angular, Woody Woodpecker look and the bright red cap.  I remember at the time wishing that I could have seen him a little more up close.  Well, this video captures one very up close and personal.  In fact it's so close, its a little bit scary to think what a bug probably feels like when one of these lands near by.  As the author of the video says, " I can see how dinosaurs would have been scary."
