interesting to see Pileated at a feeder. I'm more often see a Downy or a Hairy , but not a Pileated.

Every year my parents have pileated come to the feeder and this year we watched the parents teach the 2 young ones to eat it it, too!

Looks like they'll be feeder birds :) Hey, you're in a cool area. I was in Montreat last summer for a wedding. The dry oak forests there at 2,500 feet there are similar to out dry oak forests at 500 feet elevation and we could see Mount Mitchell off to the north with the hardwood forests extending up to 5000 feet. Here in Vermont above 3000 tends to be spruce-fir.
