For sure it was.

Those guys can sure make the wood chips fly, especially on a soft cedar. Even hard maple doesn't slow them down that much.

If you scroll down in this topic you will see an example of what Mr. Pileated does to an Ash Tree at our place. That tree is no more than 10 ft. from the cottage.

It was amazing seeing the damage he could do with each strike of his beak. The wood chips coming off that tree looked like dome was going at it with a hammer and chisle.
