Nesting Habits of the Hairy Woodpecker

Hairy Woodpeckers do not actually build nests; rather they nest in holes inside trees found in wooded areas or in suburban yards. These woodpeckers will also use a hole in a large branch.

The Hairy Woodpeckers do not add anything to the hole, unlike other birds who line their nests with soft grasses and other natural materials.

The female Hairy Woodpecker lays 3-7 white eggs inside the hole. is the top destination to find quality Wild Bird Feeders and Accessories.
