The pileated woodpecker is one of the most impressive woodpeckers in terms of size and sound. They are one of the largest woodpeckers in North America at about 15 to 16 inches in length. As you will see in the video clips on this page, they can make quite a distinctive sound as they "peck" on trees. And they're just a lot of fun to watch!
