Adopt a Red-Headed Woodpecker

Red-headed woodpeckers live east of the Rocky Mountains. They live year-round in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic states, and some migrate north to the Canadian border in the summer. However, the more north you are, the less likely you are to see a red-headed woodpecker, because of population and habitat loss. Red-headed woodpeckers like farmland, forest edges, stream banks, rural neighborhoods and forests with oak or beech trees. The red-headed woodpecker is not your typical woodpecker. Most woodpeckers feed by using their strong bill to drill into bark and remove insects from inside of trees. Red-headed woodpeckers do this, but they also chase after flying insects and eat acorns. They are omnivores and will eat whatever is available. Help NWF in its efforts to protect and recover the wild places that sustain wildlife. Adopt a red-headed woodpecker today!
