Woodpeckers are like engineers who regularly construct tree cavities of all sizes. Smaller-sized species often choose smaller trees for foraging while larger woodpeckers perch on larger trees. Different species of woodpeckers living in the sub-Himalayan forests show distinct foraging preferences depending on the size, height, and part of the tree, as well as their position in the canopy.
