This juvenile pileated woodpecker came to the South Florida Wildlife Center three months ago. He was unable to fly and his tail feathers were damaged. During rehabilitation he was hand-fed because he was not eating on his own and once he was outside in an outdoor rehabilitation habitat, staff would take him to an appropriate tree to work on his climbing skills, and gently encouraged flight. After some time he began flying from perch to perch and climbing well on trees. His feathers were finally coming in normally and he was exhibiting normal behaviors. This video was shot the week of his release when he flew from one side of the habitat to the other. The staff at SFWC thought it was a miraculous sight!
