The SIG Woodpeckers - the official name of the woodpecker working group - is a loose consortium of people with an interest in the woodpecker family. 

Due to the corona pandemic, only fully vaccinated ("boostered") participants are admitted and the conference can be switched to a video conference at short notice, similar to the event on June 26, 2021.

Previous registrations are still valid. Please send changes or cancellations directly to the organizers. For new registrations, please fill out the forms and send them to us.

The Specialist Group unites specialists and lay people interested in woodpeckers. The purpose of the Group is to have a platform for the exchange of research results, to discuss them and to make suggestions for further work. In addition, networking of people interested in woodpeckers and forests is important to the woodpecker group.

The conference languages ​​are German and in some cases English. The participants will, as always, be given the opportunity to cultivate old contacts, to make new ones and to listen to the lectures on the latest developments in woodpecker research and monitoring of woodpeckers. It will also be possible to interact with researchers from the Austrian Ornithological Centre and members of BirdLife.
