There were two of these making a hole in a redwood tree in the redwood circle. They were a little far up the tree for my camera but can be made out it the pictures.
My grandmother called these Indian Hens.
Thetis Gamberg heard a Pileated woodpecker calling. No photo or sound recording.
Dryocopus is a genus of large powerful woodpeckers, typically 35–45 cm in length. It has representatives in North and South America, Europe, and Asia; some South American species are endangered. It was believed to be closely related to the American genus Campephilus, but it is part of an entirely different lineage of woodpeckers altogether (Benz et al., 2006)
