Wild Things: Pileated Woodpeckers Becoming More Common

Once rarely seen in DuPage County, pileated woodpeckers — crow-sized birds with flaming-red crests and chisel-like beaks that can be heard hammering a quarter mile away — are being spotted in increasing numbers in some county forest preserves. 

District ranger David Sima talks about what's behind the increased sightings and the best spots to find them in our preserves on Wild Things on WDCB Radio (90.9 FM).  

            

More information about pileated woodpeckers in our preserves can be found in this press release.
