Here is another bird common around home but once I looked into it, realized that other than portions of Arizona, New Mexico and a wee bit of coastal Oregon, California is it for his home here in the U.S. So the Acorn Woodpecker would be a bird that may cause a bit of wonderment to people elsewhere in the country or the world for that matter.
Here, he is tossing a kernel of corn into his mouth.
As their name implies, they harvest acorns in the fall and store them into holes drilled into dead trees. This gives them a supply of food during the winter and spring. Will the corn kernel be like a dessert treat?
