Woodpeckers: Bang the Drum Loudly

Go outside and listen…what do you hear? We’re betting that you will catch the staccato tapping and rapping of your neighborhood woodpeckers. We call it drumming, woodpeckers call it a love call and a warning. Spring has sprung and it’s time to build a home, find a partner and raise a family. In woodpecker culture, the loudest and most repetitive drummer often goes unchallenged by rivals and captures the attention of the local fair maidens. Can you hear the “King” of the woodpeckers in your neighborhood?
