Above, the first picture is that of the Acorn Woodpecker, a clown-faced western bird. The second picture is one of a tree that has been used by the Acorn Woodpecker and the reason they’ve got their name! The birds will drill small holes in a dead tree, then take acorns in the fall and put them into the holes and eat them over the winter. They often use the same tree over several generations, which could have up to 50,000 holes in that one tree! They can be found from Oregon, USA all the way down south to Colombia. These birds don’t migrate, they don’t have to, they have their food stored up for the winter months!
