Swoop and land.
Hitch and hop.
Shred a tree stump.
Chop, chip, chop!

Enter woodpecker world and get a bird's eye view of everyday life: hiding from hawks, feeding hungry chicks, and drilling holes to build homes. Woodpeckers are nature's home builders, creating holes that many other animals live in when the woopeckers move on.

A variety of woodpecker species fly through these pages—perhaps some that live near you!
