Swooping through the trees for our January #SuperSnap is this pileated woodpecker from Sawyer county. Pileated woodpeckers are the largest woodpecker species in Wisconsin, growing to almost the size of a crow. Despite their size, these birds are notoriously difficult to spot. Stay on the lookout for their bright red head crest, and keep your ears open for their loud drumming and high-pitched call.
