Pileated Woodpecker (ringtone)

Pileated Woodpecker, Dryocopus pileatus
Sometimes called the "logcock", the Pileated is America's largest commonly seen woodpecker. While it's no Gene Simmons, it has one of the longer tongues in the bird world, which it uses to root carpenter ants, its favorite treat, out of stumps and fallen logs. Despite its size, this elegant woodpecker is often shy and hard to observe. Obtaining a close view of one usually requires careful stalking—but its distinctive call and showy plumage are worth the effort. This ringtone is the pileated's song, which it uses to advertise its presence to the opposite sex and stake out it's territory. Learn more about this species
