The white-backed woodpecker aka friend of the trees

If many white-backed woodpeckers occur in one place, it suggests an intact ecosystem. This is because the white-backed woodpecker plays an important role in pest control, feeding mainly on insects and larvae such as the bark beetle. Also, its leftover nest cavities serve as shelter for other birds and small mammals.
