Taken in the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana in late August. The Pileated Woodpecker lives throughout North America and as the third largest woodpecker, it is slightly smaller than the American Crow. Sporting the characteristic red crest, the body feathers appear to be black. It has a long tail used as a brace when chiseling.
