Subject: Re: [cobirds] Possible Old Pileated Woodpecker Tree in CO?
Both Hairy and American Three-toed Woodpeckers often excavate circular patches of bark the size of a 50-cent piece or even bigger at the base of dead conifers in the act of extracting larvae of large wood-boring beetles and also nests of carpenter ants. I would say this much more likely than an alpine Pileated Woodpecker in CO.
