        Behavioral studies in the field are required to further substantiate interspecific territoriality as the causal explanation for convergence in Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers. Many other Picoides species are sympatric with both Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers in parts of their ranges in western and southwestern North America, and most species have. The smallest woodpecker in North America, common and widespread, although it avoids the arid southwest. In the east this is the most familiar member of the family, readily entering towns and city parks, coming to backyard bird feeders. Its small size makes it versatile, and it may forage on weed stalks as well as in large trees. In winter it often joins roving mixed flocks of chickadees.

      other published sources (Short , Tremblay et al. ) we refer to this behavior as the “flutter aerial display.” During the flutter aerial display in Picoides woodpeckers, an individual engages in a quivering, mothlike flight with rapid, shallow wingbeats. The wings are extended outward in line with the body and bowed slightly downward. Short, L. L. Systematics and behavior of some North American woodpeckers, genus Picoides (Aves).

Picoides is the largest genus of woodpeckers and member species are found on most major land masses. Current systematic arrangement of this group, based on morphological, behavioral, and plumage characters, suggests that New World species evolved from a single invasion by a Eurasian common ancestor and that all New World species form a monophyletic group.

The hairy woodpecker (Leuconotopicus villosus) is a medium-sized woodpecker that is found over a large area of North America. It is approximately mm ( in) in length with a mm (15 in) wingspan. With an estimated population in of over nine million individuals, the hairy woodpecker is listed by the IUCN as a species of least concern.

Woodpeckers have long interested North American ornithologists re- searching systematics, behavioral ecology and other topics of life history (e.g., Howell ; Koenig and Mumme ; Morrison and With ; Selander and Giller ; Short, ).

It is thus surprising that so little attention has focused on molt in this group.The region of peak energy in the vocalizations of woodpeckers in the genus Picoides (1–6 kHz) is similar to that of other small birds, perhaps ranging slightly higher when compared to some other species commonly used in laboratory auditory tests, such as canaries and budgerigars (Fay, ; Dooling et al., ; Delaney et al., Black-backed woodpeckers inhabit boreal and montane forests of North America where they are able to forage for insect larvae in the trunks of coniferous trees.

Black-backed woodpeckers are attracted to fire-prone habitats and prefer to be near or within recently burned forests. They are found at elevations of approximately m.
