Woody Woodpecker Starts A Family

June 02, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

Cartoonist Walter Lantz used our largest woodpecker, the Pileated Woodpecker, as a model for his most famous creation, Woody Woodpecker.  In real life, the Pileated Woodpecker can be seen and heard throughout our Pennsylvania forests.

I've photographed Pileated Woodpeckers several times over the years but I never found a nest cavity to photograph.  I didn't really find this one either but I did visit it twice in May and captured video of the adults feeding the chicks.  I put some of my clips together to share with you.  I hope you enjoy!

Thank you for viewing,
