Birds often get overlooked when it comes to wildlife, they can be found all comers of the world. It's remarkable how adaptable they are, all together there are some ten thousand species of birds in the world and we have our share in the mountains. The Pileated Woodpecker represented here can be found year around in Banff National Park, from the warmest days to the coldest nights. They are the largest woodpecker in North America, size of a crow and if you come across a large rough rectangular hole bottom of tree, it's a sign Pileated Woodpecker has been there looking for its favourite food, carpenter ants.
