Last day on Birds

Well, this is the last day on birds.
And for the last post on birds it will be about one of my favorites.
The Wood Pecker.
Now this might sound odd, but I think that this one of the most amazing Birds that GOD ever Made.
Pileated Woodpecker Okay, so it rams it's beak into a tree at - I don't know how fast, they bam their beak hard in, to be able to penetrate the bark of the tree and still don't get a headache. That's because GOD gave him a cushion in the back of it's scull that protects that little birds' poor brain from being shaken half way to Timbuktu.
If this isn't enough, the woodpecker then sticks its long sticky barbed tong into the tree and scoops out the insect.
So, how dose the Woodpecker keep the bark out of it's nose?
Well, GOD made the Woodpecker with tufts of feathers over it''s nose so that the bark wont go in.
