Most species of woodpecker live in forests or woodlands, although a few species live in treeless areas, rocky hillsides and deserts. Members of the species are chiefly known for their characteristic behaviour. They forage for insects, mainly ants on the trunks and branches of trees. They use their strong beak to dig into ant colonies and eat the inhabitants. Green woodpeckers spend most of their time feeding on the ground. You will find them in local parks – short grass provides good feeding opportunities for them. Like other woodpeckers, the Green Woodpecker breed in holes they peck in dead wood. They can be found worldwide, except for Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand, Madagascar, and the extreme polar regions.
