Woodpeckers have a variety of adaptations that make them great at pecking wood! They have a tongue that is so long that they must store it behind their skull when it is not in use. They have spongy tissue in their skull to absorb shock. Their feet have two toes pointed backwards to help them grip vertically on trees. Through the use of a PowerPoint and our taxidermied collection of the seven New Jersey woodpeckers, we will learn all about these unique birds. Pre-registration required.
