At the turn of the 20th century over 90% of the woodlands in the Eastern United States had been removed to create open farmland an to fuel the new industrial age. Woodpeckers, along with many other woodland creatures, were barely able to survive. But over time woodlands were replanted. The persistance of the pileated paid off and today they are a common sight in our woodlands. The one depicted in my painting lives outside my studio.
