Woodpeckers are like the percussionists of the forest. Akin to the drummer in a band, they can often be overlooked when flashy lead singers like thrushes and sparrows take the springtime stage. However, woodpeckers deserve their own solo, and have unique ways of moving, eating, and communicating that set them apart from other birds. In this program, you will learn some fascinating science about woodpecker brains, tongues, and feathers, and what you can do to help conserve these curious creatures. Most of our New England woodpecker species are around all year, so you can enjoy their quirky habits no matter the season.
