Pileated woodpeckers attracted to Mexican food

This nestling woodpecker is in the tree next to Mi Casa restaurant. Many thanks to Buck Butler who alerted me to its presence.

I could not stay long enough to watch the nest until the parents returned, so I don’t know if this is the only nestling, or whether there are multiple youngsters who compete for access to the nest hole entrance.
