ABSTRACT
Woodpecker, a tree-climbing, wood-boring bird. It gets its name from the way it uses its bill to dig into trees for nesting and for food. There are more than 200 species of woodpeckers, 20 of them native to North America. The birds inhabit forested regions throughout the world, except in Australia, Madagascar, and certain South Pacific islands. Flickers and sapsuckers belong to the woodpecker family.
