Bird of the Week: Acorn Woodpecker

By January 17, 2013

Follow me on:

Birders go nuts for this week's featured bird - the acorn woodpecker is distinct not only with outstanding markings, but also with its unique "granary trees" to store thousands of acorns for winter food. Social and noisy, these birds are an easy woodpecker to find in the proper habitat - one with plenty of oak trees to feed a hungry flock!
