Two Hairy Woodpeckers (female and male)

Hairy Woodpecker (Dryobates villosus)

The Hairy Woodpecker is widely distributed throughout North America, in habitats that include large trees. They forage, probe, and excavate for insects around tree trunks and large branches. Woodpeckers are black and white with white underbellies. Males have red patches on the back of their heads, an example of sexual dimorphism. These birds nest in tree cavities, and both parents share responsibility for incubating the eggs and feeding their hatchlings.
