average 18" in length, the pileated is the largest woodpecker in Canada. These colossal birds, with their striking red crest and resemblance to prehistoric pterodactyls in flight, are thought to be the inspiration for the once popular cartoon Woody the Woodpecker.He looks pleased.
What is the scale on these birds. We have woodpeckers here but they're generally less than 6" tall?
Thanks Dan. I go through a couple of these a week. Have to keep the pileated family hale and healthy.Wow. You really go all out for the birdies. Looks darn tasty. My bride puts a similar looking mix on salad. Without the shells, of course. Those pileateds aught to be about ready to move into the house with you. Not sure that Trooper will approve.
