7. Their Common Colors
The plumage of woodpeckers are usually black, white, red, and yellow. But there are other species of woodpeckers that have a more vivid kind of coloring, like orange, green, brown, gold and even maroon. It also differs between the sexes of the woodpecker species, as the males have more obvious red and yellow markings on their heads compared to female woodpeckers. In time, it might not be long before we see a multi-colored woodpecker somewhere.
