    In 2003 it was announced that the worlds largest breed of woodpecker, the Black and White Imperial Woodpecker, is believed to be extinct.  While the breed has not been officially marked as extinct and still is listed as a critically endangered species, it is still widely regarded as being extinct.  The Black and White Imperial Woodpeckers reached lengths of approximately 2 feet and they once inhabited parts of the United States and Mexico.  Researches believe that the birds’ decline was mostly due to the loss of their habitat to deforestation.
