Woodpeckers and Relatives: Piciformes - Geographic Range

found world tropics

Even though they do not migrate, piciform birds make up one of the most widespread bird orders, mostly due to the woodpeckers that are found on all the world's continents except for Antarctica and Australia. The other piciform families are less widely distributed; the jacamars, toucans, and puffbirds are only found in the New World tropics, and honeyguides only found in Southeast Asia and Africa. Barbets are found in both the tropics of the New World and the Old World.
