The Pileated Woodpecker is the largest North American woodpecker. Funny, mischief making cartoon character Woody Woodpecker, was inspired by this bird. Other birds need this species for survival. They will use the holes or cavities the Pileated drills as nests, winter shelter, and a way to get at food inside trees that is otherwise hidden.
