Woodpeckers are incredibly unique and have been around for millions of years. They require specific habitats and are very noticeable by their sound and movement. There are seven species of woodpeckers living in Illinois habitats. What many may not know is how critical woodpeckers are to some of our common backyard birds. Register for the webinar and hear the history of woodpeckers, how to identify them, and why they are important for many other species in the environment. PresenterPeggy Doty.
