Caption: Arizona Woodpecker (Picoides arizonae) male, Madera Canyon, Arizona. The Arizona Woodpecker is the only brown-backed woodpecker in the United States. The species is restricted to Madrean woodland and forest riparian areas, where it is especially dependent on evergreen oaks and adjacent riparian woodland. Being one of the primary cavity nesters in this area, the Arizona Woodpecker is responsible for providing nest sites for a large number of additional species. It can be found in the mountains of extreme southwestern New Mexico, southeast Arizona and south into Mexico.
