Indian Woodpecker

on July 4, 2014


Scan 6 - Version 4This beautiful card comes from Amit in India on his travels through a nature reserve. Although this card says all that is needed to be know about the Common Golden Back Woodpecker, did you know that inside a woodpecker’s  beak there is a long tongue used for rooting out food from the tree they are drilling? And to prevent brain damage, their skulls have had to adapt specially! Amazing!
