A pileated woodpecker is seen making a nest in a tree trunk. The woodpecker has a bright red crest on its head. The bird is the same size as a pigeon. It is large for a woodpecker. In this photograph, the wild bird is making a hole in a tree to be used for nesting. The blue sky can be seen in the background. This bird is found in the Costa Rica rainforest.

The habitat of this species is forests and more open woodland. A nesting hole is excavated in large dead trees. The entrance is fairly large, about 45 to 50 cm (17.5 to 19.5 in) in diameter, and oval-shaped. Female lays 2 to 3 white eggs, sometimes four. Incubation lasts about 9 to 14 days, by both sexes. Woodpeckers have short incubation period, but the nesting period is longer than in other birds’ species.
