Books: Woodpeckers of Europe

If you want to see all 10 species of woodpecker that occur in Europe, then you will have to head east. Countries such as Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria are home to all 9 resident species plus the migratory Wryneck. Indeed, as a general rule, the number of woodpecker species increases as one heads from the very west (for example, 1 species in Ireland, 3 in Britain, etc) eastwards. This book covers all you will need to know about the European Picidae.
