How to Attract Woodpeckers: Wildlife Friendly Tips |

There are 23 species of woodpeckers in the United States, including the downy woodpecker and the red-bellied woodpecker. They are known for the distinctive drumming sounds they make with their beaks, much of which, but not all, can be seen from their bright red caps and black and white plumage.

Unfortunately, some woodpecker species are threatened with extinction due to habitat loss and pesticide use. In 2021, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service declared the ivory-billed woodpecker extinct. Making your garden more wildlife friendly is a good way to help support these feathered friends and your local ecosystem. But this is not the only benefit.
