« Downy woodpeckers that live in the
southern part of their range mate in
late winter. They mate in the early
spring if they live in the northern part
of their range. Both the male and the female
make the nest by pecking a hole in a dead tree,
fence post or sometimes, a telephone pole.

The nest can take up to two weeks to dig out.
The female lays four to five white eggs.
The eggs are incubated for about twelve days.
Both parents incubate the eggs and care for
the chicks. The chicks first leave the nest
when they are about three weeks old. »
