Summary

Summary

"Woodpeckers are usually easier to hear than they are to spot. Their pointed beak hammers into tree bark at a speed of 25 miles (40 km) per hour. They're looking for some tasty bugs to eat in the inner layers of a tree. There's so much more to a woodpecker's interesting life, and readers will find all they need to know in this instructive and entertaining book, a bird-watcher's journal of woodpecker info. Cool facts and amazing photographs are the stars of this must-read."
