Here is a pic of a female Pileated Woodpecker (about 40 cm in length) clinging to the side of a tree to possibly peck for carpenter ants. Pileated woodpeckers are really big. In fact, the Pileated Woodpecker is the largest woodpecker in most of North America. For more info on pileated woodpeckers, click here. The Pileated Woodpecker looks similar to the Ivory-billed Woodpecker. The Ivory-billed Woodpecker was considered extinct for many years. But, the ivory-billed woodpecker may be alive. This pic was shot at Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden & Bird Sanctuary, Minneapolis, MN on 090808.    まぼろし (絶滅したと思われていたが、アーカンソー州 Arkansas  には、生存しているらしい?)
