Review by Horn Book Review

Clearly written text describes the characteristics of woodpeckers, focusing primarily on those of North America. The text differentiates between knocking behavior used to communicate, find food, or build a home, and discusses predators, raising young, and loss of habitat due to logging and development. Habitat maps and well-labeled color photos fill out the overview. Glos., ind. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
