Colour in this wonderful woodpecker and bring him to life.

Great spotted woodpeckers are really glam-looking birds. Use your favourite pens and pencils and colour him in.

  • The great spotted woodpecker’s Latin name is Dendrocopus major
  • Only the male bird has a red patch on the back of his head
  • They like to eat insects, seeds and nuts

Get inspired by real woodpeckers, or create your own using your favourite colours. Try adding texture using fabric and feathers.
