4. How many toes on each foot do all woodpeckers have pointing forward?

Answer: 2

Their feet are also adapted for climbing and hanging. All woodpeckers have two toes pointing forward and either one or two toes pointing to the side or slightly backward. Thus, woodpeckers are able to grip a tree trunk surface with opposable toes.
5. What is the family name for woodpecker?

Answer: Picidae

The family of birds that they are in is the Picidae. Woodpeckers are found in the order 'Piciformes'. The order includes puffbirds, jacamars, barbets, honey-guides and toucans.
