Daily Postcard: Acorn Woodpecker Tackles Jumbo Peanuts

Daily Postcard: She’s got this! An Acorn Woodpecker is not daunted in the least as she settles down on a railing to tackle a pair of jumbo peanuts recently near Mountain Elementary School. Acorn Woodpeckers are unusual in that they live in large groups, hoard acorns and breed cooperatively. Group members gather acorns by the hundreds and wedge them into holes they’ve made in tree trunks or telephone poles. Acorn Woodpeckers also spend considerable time catching insects on the wing.
