Woodpecker Facts

Woodpeckers are omnivores. They eat insects, berries, nuts and seeds. There are at least two hundred different species of woodpeckers. There are only a few places you will not find woodpeckers and that is Australia, New Zealand and Madagascar. Woodpeckers range in size from three inches to twenty inches in length. Woodpeckers can live up to eleven years in the wild. Woodpeckers mate for life. When the mate dies is when the surviving woodpecker will find another mate. The male and female woodpecker build the nest together. Woodpeckers have 2-5 eggs. One parent stays with the eggs at all times while the other parent gathers food. Once the eggs are laid it generally takes 14 days for the young woodpeckers to hatch. The young woodpeckers are ready to leave the nest at approximately 1 month after hatching.
