Interesting Fact: Woodpeckers don’t sing songs, but they drum loudly against pieces of wood or metal to achieve the same effect. People sometimes think this drumming is part of the birds’ feeding habits, but it isn’t. In fact, feeding birds make surprisingly little noise even when they’re digging vigorously into wood.

I have just been schooled. I thought they were digging at food. Thanks. . .

I never realized that the loud pecking sounds were not feeding, but their “calls”. Thanks.
I agree, It is quite interesting. Thank you very much for stopping by and Happy Blogging! 🙂
