Can anyone identify the animal which has left these holes in the tree? It looks like an animal has removed fairly large chips of wood from the rotting tree to get at insects or worms inside. Some of the chips on the ground have a half-inch diameter and are two or three inches long.

I'll guess a pileated woodpecker, but might be another species of woodpecker.  Pileated excavate large oval holes, often more elongated than in your picture.

I agree with Pete - looks like pileated woodpecker work when they are foraging for insect larvae
