North America. It has a black body, (approximately 8 inches long), and white head. It has white primary feathers that form a crescent in flight. Males have a red spot at the nape of the neck.
The range of the White-headed Woodpecker stretches in the mountains from British Columbia through southern California. They form nests in dead trees or snags and reproduce once per year.
