Hi, all.

I have just recently returned from Gadsden, AL where I witnessed on two different occasions a Pileated Woodpecker feeding on the ground near a birdfeeder which is filled with black sunflower seeds.  It looked as if he was looking for insects or worms as he was not directly under the feeder where seed fallout occurs.  Has anyone else witnessed this behavior in Pileateds?
