Woody Woodpecker´s Taxonomy
Last night I woke up with the thought in my head of which species does Woody Woodpecker belong to…so I grabbed my Birds of North America went to the woodpecker section and tried to inmerse myself in the mind of Walter Lantz.
So after some thought I came to the conclusion that “El pájaro loco” as we call him in spanish must be a Pileated Woodpecker dont ask me why because woody is blue and the pileated is black, but then again all the crested woodpeckers were anything but blue.
Then at work I started to do some googleing about the subject and most people (those with enough time to waste to be thinking these kinds of things 🙂 ) agree that it is a Pileated….another guy says that Woody is a Red Headed Woodpecker, which I disagree.
Any other ideas are welcomed.
…..Ideas on these charcaters 😉
