Retired: Acorn Woodpecker

Woodpeckers have feet with two toes up and two toes down, making it easy for them to climb up and down all sorts of trees.

Woody, our Acorn woodpecker, was found injured as a young bird in 1994 in Stockton, California and taken to a wildlife hospital for treatment. Although he eventually healed from his injuries, he became habituated to people and could not be released. He came to Lindsay Wildlife in 1995—that’s 22 years ago, and Woody doesn’t shows his age! Adopt him today!
