Woodpeckers of North America

Woodpeckers of North America

This mission's objective (if you choose to accept it) is to upload photographs of all of the species of North American woodpeckers that you encounter. This include all members of the family Picidae (woodpeckers, sapsuckers, flickers, piculets). You may also add any signs of woodpecker activity. North America includes the entire continent from Canada in the North and Panama in the South. It is very helpful to post the habitat and any other information if the spotting is unknown. Good birding to you all! Sign in to join mission
