I became interested, well more than just interested you could call it obsessed with the rediscovery of the IBW in all things about woodpeckers...

I learned of the IBW and the PWP in an old Petersons Field Guide & for nearly 15+ years have been drawn in by the storied history and rediscovery of the beloved Ivory Bill of the old growth forests in the South and South Eastern US of A...

My backyard feeders are suet logs and tail prop suet feeders especially set up and set out for woodpeckers & other suet loving clinging birds...

My hope is that people like Billy Benish and a host of many others are shedding the light on this magnificent bird species and notably the Campephilus species as they are the most at risk and need our help so desparatly to maintain and restore any habitat possible throughout the range they inhabit... so sad to think that our own IBW may be gone and that the Imperial may be gone as well... maybe there is hope for the IBW here in the USA... maybe I cling to that hope that one day we will know that the species has somehow cheated extinction & survived mans inhumanity to nature...

Keep up the great work that your are dong Martjan Lammertink & so many others like him that are trying to document the persistnece of the NA Ivory BIll so that the/a recovery paln can proceed to save this bird and Americas last stands of old growth and restore any lands to its natural state prior to extensive logging during WW2...

Thank you and long live the Ghost Bird of North America!

Amazing pictures! They also capture the behaviour and the habitat of woodpeckers nicely. PicidPics is indeed a unique resource. All the best!

A nice web page by our colleague Gilberto Pasinelli with photos of woodpecker research in Switzerland is here:

Really enjoy the galleries, as I am sure that woodpecker fanatics the world over will.

What a great idea! Can we link directly to your site from our (developing) birds of the world site at the Lab of Ornithology? And is there any plan to link it to the Flickr site associated with the lab? We need to get you some good swallow pictures at woodpecker tree holes...
