Even without being seen, woodpeckers are one of the most identifiable birds from the sounds they make.
The woodpecker loves the forested areas for hollowing out trees.
The Woodpecker is another beautiful, rare and unique bird.
These birds do not get headaches. Nature has designed the biology of a woodpecker so that the back of their tongue wraps around their brain, thus preventing concussions.
Seen throughout the year at Walden pond, the woodpecker loves to peck wood.
This bird comes in many different colours and patterns. Some have red heads and a red stripe that goes down the back of their necks, while others have red on the head.
Some have a cascading black and white wavy pattern, while others have black spots over a white coat.
They all have a long hard beak which allows for constant penetration of dead wood.
Many types can be seen and heard daily around Walden.
This brings an end to the Birds from Walden series. Next week we will begin a new series. Alphabet soup for the soul vol.2
