Picidae - Woodpeckers, Flickers, Sapsuckers, Wrynecks, Piculets

downy woodpecker

Classification

 Phylum: Chordata
 Class: Aves
 Order: Piciformes
 Family: Picidae

Red-bellied woodpeckerThere are around 218 species in this family of birds. They are found in all parts of the world, except for Australia, Madagascar, and the polar regions.Most species are found in forests or woodlands, although some species, like The gila woodpecker, are found in deserts.

They range in size from 3-23 inches in length. Many species in this family have some combination of red, white, and black feathers. They have strong, straight bills; long, sticky tongues; long, stiff tail feathers; and zygodactyl feet. That means they have two toes facing frontwards and two toes facing backwards. This helps them climb tree trunks. Their stiff tails help them keep their balance as they cling to the sides of trees!

The birds in this family nest in tree cavities. Most species dig out their own cavity, although wrynecks use the abandoned cavities of other birds or a tree crotch or natural crevice. Males and females work together to build the nest. In some species, the male does most of the excavation and the female arranges the inside of the nest. Females lay 2-5 eggs and both the male and female incubate the eggs and feed and care for the chicks. Most species eat ants, beetles, spiders, moths, grasshoppers, crickets, and insect larvae. Some species may also eat nuts, berries, seeds, and sap.

The imperial woodpecker is thought to be extinct. The imperial woodpecker was once found in the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains in northwestern Mexico. The last confirmed sighting of the imperial woodpecker was in the 1950s. The imperial woodpecker was the largest woodpecker species. It was 23 inches in length. The imperial woodpecker was black and white and had a long, pointed yellowish-orange bill. The male had a large red crest and the female had a black crest.

The ivory-billed woodpecker was once thought to be extinct, but scientists may have spotted this large woodpecker along The Cache River in Arkansas in 2004 and again in 2005. The ivory-billed woodpecker is a large black and white woodpecker. It has white wing patches and a white stripe that runs from its cheek down its neck and back. The male has a red crest and the female has a black crest. Ivory-billed woodpeckers have an ivory-colored bill. The ivory-billed woodpecker was once found in the southeastern United States and in Cuba.
