Nesting Habits of the Downy Woodpecker

A Downy Woodpecker does not build an actual nest, instead preferring to nest in the holes of trees.

The female Downy Woodpecker lays 3-8 white eggs which she will incubate for about 12 days. The fledglings will leave the nest in about 18-21 days afterward, to go out on their own. is the top destination to find quality Wild Bird Feeders and Accessories.
