Just Call Him “Woody”


Many thanks to longtime guest Roy P. from Manalapan, NJ who sent us this photo of a Red-bellied Woodpecker he spotted on his trip to Ocean’s Reach earlier this year.

Crazy fact about this little fella?  A Red-bellied Woodpecker can stick out its tongue nearly 2 inches past the end of its beak.  The tip is barbed and the bird’s spit is sticky, making it easier to snatch prey from deep crevices.  Males have longer, wider-tipped tongues than females.

Yep, I knew that — It was on the tip of my tongue!
