What you will see tonight is 68 species of woodpeckers that we have selected out of the 215 species that exist in the world. Many species of woodpeckers breed in North America.
We will show you all of those. We will then take you Central America and on to Africa. After that we will show you five of the 27 species of the tiny Piculets scattered around the globe, and then on to India and the Asian subcontinent. From there we go to Europe and on to our last stop with the wonderful woodpeckers of South America.
