The Woodpecker is a species of animal found in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Description

Red-Bellied Woodpecker

The Red-Bellied Woodpecker can be found in Roanoke Ridge. As omnivores, their diet consist of insects, fruits, nuts and berries. A Bow with Small Game Arrows can be used to take down birds of this size, with minimal damage to their carcass. Their carcass and feathers can be used for crafting.

Pileated Woodpecker

The Pileated Woodpecker can be found in the woodland areas of New Hanover. As omnivores, their diet consist of insects, fruits, nuts and berries. A Bow with Small Game Arrows is considered to be the best weapon to take down woodpeckers. Their carcass and feathers can be used for crafting.

Hints

The woodpecker is distinct from other birds in that it makes a unique noise that sounds almost like a gatling gun when one is close to it.

Location

The woodpecker can be found in virtually all locations except for Cholla Springs, Río Bravo, Gaptooth Ridge, and Great Plains. They are not as common in Hennigan's Stead, Grizzlies West, or Bayou Nwa. They are one of the few animals to be found at the Sisika Penitentiary.

Challenges

Tips

A Perfect Woodpecker is needed for the second request from The Wildlife Art Exhibition.
