I have always found the Woodpecker to be a fascinating creature. They are interesting feathered friends and I wanted to say I think God had some great ideas when he created the world. The woodpecker is one of them. They are just interesting looking birds and their purpose is something our Maker must have had in mind when he decided to blueprint this bird!
We can always smile when we see a woodpecker if we grew up with "Woody" one of the most famous woodpeckers who also had his own cartoon show. Woodpeckers are found worldwide except for Australia, New Zealand, Madagascar and the extreme polar regions. They live in forests and woodlands. A few of this species lives in treeless areas such as rocky hilltops and deserts. There are about 200 species and this bird is becoming endangered due to loss of habitat and habitat fragmentation. You may see one of these often colorful birds hanging around your home as they love wood and like to bore through wood! Keep your eyes out for these interesitng birds.
