Woodpeckers, Piculets, Wrynecks, and Sapsuckers are a family, Picidae, of near passerine birds.
Members of this family are found worldwide, except for Australia, New Zealand, Madagascar and a few other areas.
Most of them live in forests or woodland habitats, save for a few known to leave in treeless areas, like rocky hillsides and deserts.
Woodpeckers range from highly antisocial solitary species that are aggressive to other members of their species, to spp that live in groups.
The woodpecker diet consist of mainly insects and their grubs taken from living and dead trees, fruit, nuts and sup from live trees.
The insects prey most commonly taken are those found inside tree trunks, whether alive, dead or rotten.
Woodpeckers have got barbed tongues which they use to excavate their prey.
These may be obtained either by gleaning or, most famously, by excavating wood.
They nest in tree cavities and they excavate their own nests.
The nest is usually only lined from the wood chips produced as the hole was made.
Many woodpecker species excavate one hole per breeding season, and it takes about a month to finish the excavation.
Tullberg's Woodpecker is said to have been split into two Uganda remaining with the one called Fine-banded Woodpecker.
It can be found in forests like Bwindi, Echuya among others.
The bird for today is Tullberg's Woodpecker and am Johnnie Kamugisha.
