From the iconic Woody Woodpecker to the ubiquitous Northern Flicker, woodpeckers have long captivated our attention.

It explores their unique anatomy and their fascinating and often comical behaviors; it covers each species' North American conservation status; and it showcases over 250 stunning photographs of woodpeckers in their natural habitats, plus easy-to-read figures and range maps. This reference guide is an essential addition to every birder's library.
