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 about more birds when I am inspired, have done my research, and when I have time!

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 are experts 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!

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