Crawlies with Cri: Pileated Woodpeckers

This week we’re going to meet a rare bird and learn what made her so unique. Warning: science content ahead!Both birds in our collage photo are juvenile pileated woodpeckers who were born in 2015 (they may or may not be siblings). The one on the right is a female; the one on the left is a male. However, the difference in their sex isn’t what accounts for their difference in color . . .
