Two Ontario Woodpecker species

Two Ontario Woodpecker species


Hello there,

Is this list exhaustive? I'm from Sarnia, Ontario, which apparently is a hotspot for migrating songbirds.

I'm just wondering - why aren't there any woodpeckers on this list?

If there are certain species found in this area, then please let me know!

I'm 100% certain I've seen and heard them in my backyard over the years.

Hello - thanks for your email message - the list of birds on this site are the just my favorites! I write when I am inspired, have done my research, and when I have time - I'm a busy retiree who loves to travel and do volunteer work in my community!

Woodpeckers are on my to-do list, starting with the small Downy Woodpecker, the Hairy Woodpecker, Flicker, Yellow Bellied Sapsucker and the Pileated Woodpecker.

If any of our readers would like to submit information on any of the above birds, we welcome articles which we will publish on this website - just make sure your work is original, and you can send pictures if you have them, and if not, I will add pictures!

Check back in a month or two, and I may have more about the Woodpeckers of Southern Ontario.
