Pileated Woodpecker On a dreary day I was looking out the window and then out of the blue I saw a pileated woodpecker. The pileated wood pecker is about a foot long  and will peck hole faster than you could imagin the scientific name is Hylatomus pileatus. This picture was taken in Columbia, Missouri.

The Pileated Woodpecker is a very large North American woodpecker, roughly crow-sized, inhabiting deciduous forests in eastern North America, the Great Lakes, the boreal forests of Canada, and parts of the Pacific coast. It is also the largest woodpecker in the United States, excepting the possibly extinct Ivory-billed Woodpecker.
