Woodpeckers

Identification

  • Various sizes and colorations depending on the species involved, most are predominantly black and white with accents of red and yellow

  • Thick, sturdy bill

  • Well known for the sound associated with them drilling into trees for food

Environment

  • Found pretty much world wide

  • Prefer wooded habitats

Threats

  • Feed on insects and grubs found in trees and wooden structures, such as carpenter bee larvae

  • Some species will bore holes in rings around trees that are unsightly

  • Noise from their feeding habits can be highly irritating

Treatment

  • Place metal flashing around structures where woodpeckers have been seen; the light and noise should discourage them from the area

  • If possible, limit food resources such as carpenter bee larvae
