Learn to attract and feed a variety woodpeckers with this pocket-sized guide.
The splash of red on black and white—few backyard guests are more exciting to behold than the Downy Woodpecker. And what can capture a bird watcher’s attention like a woodpecker drumming against a tree? You love these beloved birds, and you want to see them visiting your backyard or garden. Professional naturalist and award-winning author Stan Tekiela teaches you all that you need to know about woodpeckers, from flickers to sapsuckers.
The handy book is divided into three main sections. First, you’ll learn all about woodpeckers: facts, range, habitat, calls, nests, and more. Up next, you’ll be introduced to suet and other foods—such as seeds and grains—that keep woodpeckers coming back. In the third section, Stan tells you which feeders woodpeckers prefer and why. You’ll also be given information on placing feeders, cleaning feeders, and protecting woodpeckers.
