The pileated woodpecker [pic 1] (the inspiration for the cartoon character Woody Woodpecker) is almost as large as a crow [pic 2]. The primary diet of the pileated woodpecker includes ants [pic 3], wood-boring beetle larvae [pic 4], and fruits and nuts. These rectangular holes were excavated by a woodpecker searching out tasty insects, such as black carpenter ants.
