The family Picidae consists of approximately 200 species of woodpeckers, piculets and wrynecks. Members of this family are found worldwide, except for Australia, New Zealand, Madagascar, and the polar regions. Most species live in forests or woodland habitats. One species of woodpecker, the Ivory-billed Woodpecker has been considered extinct for about 30 years but recent reports of sightings, including a video, has biologists questioning if this species still exists.
