I've had pileated woodpeckers come to my feeders on rare occasions - both to 
the suet feeder and to the hanging tube feeder with sunflower seeds.

I suspect what drew them to the tube feeder was the hulled sunflower seed
that I mixed in with the unhulled seed, though obviously I can't be sure.

I've often seen the pileated woodpecker foraging on trees near my house, but
it's quite a sight to see that big bird feeding from a bird feeder just 10
feet from my kitchen window! Again, I must say that it's happened only on
rare occasions - on average, perhaps once or twice each winter. It appears
they much prefer foraging on dead or dying trees.
