Representatives of the second have a massive beak and stocky body. They live almost anywhere there is vegetation.

So, woodpeckers perform several useful functions. First, destroy pests that damage trees. Secondly, they create hollows during the construction of the nest, where other insectivorous birds live after them. It is important to note that birds rarely live in groups and even their broods break up early. But in places with a good food base, they do not live alone. Sexual dimorphism is not particularly pronounced, and chicks can be confused with an adult due to the similarity in color. Birds live in many forests of the Earth and benefit nature and humans.
