6. Their Habitat
Like we mentioned earlier, while there are about 180 to 200 species of woodpeckers, they are also found pretty much all over the world, meaning that they’re almost everywhere. The only places where they aren’t are Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand, Madagascar, as well as the extreme polar regions, a.k.a the north and south poles and yes, Antarctica. Woodpeckers usually live in forests or in woodland places, although some species of woodpeckers are known to live in areas where there are no trees, such as rocky hillsides and even the deserts.
