The woodpeckers belong to the Picidae family. They are characterized by having a strong peak for drilling and drumming in trees; fine tongues, pointed and with small bristles, to extract the food.

They have zygdactyly feet, that is, with four fingers, two pointing forward and two pointing backwards. This distribution of the fingers is very useful to be able to climb the trunks and branches of the trees in which they live.

They feed on insects, worms and larvae, capturing them under the bark or piercing the interior of trees or fallen trunks.

In Catalonia we have the following species: - Royal Spotted Woodpecker (Picus viridis) - Black Spotted Woodpecker (Dryocopus martius) - Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) - Lesser Spot (Dendrocopos minor) -Middle Spotted (Dendrocopos medius) -Wryneck (Jynx torquilla)
