Native woodpecker species

Our exhibition "Woodpeckers - Builders of the Forest" offers a deep insight into the world of these mysterious birds. Of the approximately 200 species occurring worldwide, only ten are native to Austria. All woodpecker species found in Austria are shown in their habitats. Natural enemies, such as the goshawk, the sparrow hawk or the pine marten are also on display. In addition, we show you some of the many re-users of woodpecker cavities. Blue-bellied owls, dormice and hermit beetles use woodpecker cavities as shelters and breeding sites.

Any showcases are equipped with lower columns and multimedia desks and are custom-made Eurocases with toughened safety glass.
