January #SuperSnap

This month’s #SuperSnap was nominated by @eaglecon. Thanks for this fantastic photo series of a pileated woodpecker (Dryocopus pileastus) in action from Waupaca county! Fun fact: the pileated woodpecker’s brain is completely protected by a reinforced skull and neck. This protection is important since the woodpecker pecks into trees for carpenter ant snacks and “drums” for mates. (source )
