Woodpeckers   

1     As we wander in a forest, we hear a rapid tapping sound. Looking around and trying to locate the source of the noise, we finally spot a woodpecker diligently bashing its beak against a tree trunk.
 
2     Woodpeckers are amazing birds because they possess two special skills that no other birds have - woodpeckers can cling to tree trunks in a vertical position, and they can drill holes into wood with their chisel-shaped beaks. With about 200 different species of woodpeckers in the world, we can find them almost everywhere. The only continents that don't have woodpeckers are Australia and Antarctica.
