The Pileated Woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus) is native to North America and is a birdwatcher's favourite because of its spectacular black colouring and red crest, as well as its large size (16 to 20" in length).   It is also immediately recognized by is urgent, loud call and its sweeping wing-beats.
