Peck-tacular Woodpeckers
Show Notes

Many birds have amazing adaptations to compete and survive in the world, and the woodpecker is no exception.  Even though early naturalists didn't use much imagination naming the bird (I mean seriously...a bird that pecks wood so they call him a wood pecker...c'mon y'all!) , they certainly were amazed at the coloration, adaptations, and behavior of woodpeckers.  Join Marvin and Gabrielle as they talk about the amazing antics and adaptations of woodpeckers and share stories about these unique birds.

Here's some great websites about woodpeckers:
