Woodpecker Photos

Picidae Family

I've seen all the Woodpecker species that have been found in South Dakota, but don't have photos for a few of them yet.  I do have photos for four species not found in South Dakota, photos that were taken in California or Arizona (Acorn Woodpecker, Gila Woodpecker, Ladder-backed Woodpecker, and Gilded Flicker).

Click on the images or species name for more photos of that species.
