Subfamily PICINAE

Subfamily PICINAE
(TRUE WOODPECKERS).
As is well known, the great majority of true Woodpeckers breed in holes in trees, cutting these out for themselves and laying their eggs at the bottom of the holes with no attempt at a nest of any sort. The eggs are invariably white, unless stained, and are generally of a very glossy hard china-white. Unless, therefore, nests and eggs show some unusual character but little space will be given in the following pages to their details.
