The largest species of woodpecker is the Imperial Woodpecker, which is about 23 inches in height. Sadly, however, this rare species of bird is critically endagered, nearing extinction.
The Imperial Woodpecker or Campephilus imperialis, with its bright red crest, is the largest of the woodpecker family, reaching a length of about 23.6 inches. It primarily lives in the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains of Mexico. This bird is feared to be extinct along with the Ivory-billed woodpecker, and if that is so, then the second largest (in America) is the Pileated woodpecker.
