Title Big Woody and Tongue

This is a female Peliated Woodpecker, it is the largest woodpecker in North America. She stayed with me one early fall and mid winter constantly carrying food with her as she left, so I assumed she had a baby or was stashing it for hard times!!! lol But I loved this lucky shot where I caught her tongue all the way out. And ALL....EVERY SINGLE ONE, unless I say otherwise or of an old barn, it's not from my yard.

But I just love woodpeckers in general but to get one of these huge beauties about 15 ft away on mt woman-made feeding ares was an absolute treat!!!! And yes they are huge!!!!
