Woodpeckers occur nearly worldwide, except in the region of Australia and New Guinea, but are most abundant in South America and Southeast Asia.

Most woodpeckers are resident, but a few temperate-zone species, such as the North American yellow-bellied sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius) and the flicker (genus Colaptes), are migratory. Woodpeckers are part of the family Picidae, a group of near-passerine birds that also consist of piculets, wrynecks, and s of this family are found worldwide, except for Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand, Madagascar, and the extreme polar species live in forests or woodland habitats, although a few species are known that live in treeless areas, such as rocky Class: Aves.

A small, unobtrusive woodpecker of northern North America and western mountains, the American Three-toed Woodpecker specializes on the plentiful insect populations found in bark beetle outbreaks, young burned areas, and other disturbances.

Its distinctive foraging style involves chipping sideways at dead and dying trees until flakes of bark fall away, revealing insect larvae in the sap-rich. Red-bellied Woodpeckers are pale, medium-sized woodpeckers common in forests of the East.

Their strikingly barred backs and gleaming red caps make them an unforgettable sight – just resist the temptation to call them Red-headed Woodpeckers, a somewhat rarer species that's mostly black on the back with big white wing patches. Learn the Red-bellied's rolling call and you’ll notice these.

It circles around branches in search of food and sometimes perches crosswise on a twig much like a sparrow might do. This year-round resident gives a metallic rattle and high-pitched pit most of the year.
