Life as a woodpecker can’t be much fun. You pound your head against a tree all day, and all you get from that is the chance to eat bugs. But it works for the woodpeckers. These birds use their strong bills to peck at the tree, which makes insects crawl out of the wood.

The birds then scoop up those bugs with their sticky tongues. To get those bugs moving, woodpeckers can peck up to 20 times per second! The pecking is so hard on their heads that woodpeckers have grown smaller brains than other birds. Maybe that’s why they haven’t figured out a better way to find dinner.
