Wild about Woodpeckers

Did you know there are TEN different species woodpecker in the Okanagan and Similkameen? Some, like the Northern Flicker and Pileated Woodpecker are well known and quite common, but others like the White-headed Woodpecker (pictured) are very rare and endangered!



White-headed Woodpeckers are dependent on wide open Ponderosa Pine forests for breeding and foraging. Much of this pine forests in the Okanagan has either been logged/developed, or have grown in too thick due to fire suppression to support these woodpeckers.
