Lewis’s Woodpecker

Pink bellies and dark green backs stand out from our other woodpeckers. 

Active seasons


How/where to find

Open woodlands are good spots to find them, but they’re also often seen perched on telephone poles and darting out to pick off insects in the air.

An uncommon visitor to the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, you can mainly find the Lewis’s Woodpecker on the Columbia Valley and Osoyoos Bird Trails.
