Like any creature on earth, a woodpecker has a certain way to find food, just like other birds, animals, and living things in general. For example, bald eagles dive their feet in the water until they hunt fish, as well as woodpecker, when it sees larvae or various insects. In wood he clicks the wood to reach it, and it is interesting that once an opening is opened in the bark of the tree the woodpecker uses his tongue surprisingly to get what he wants, but there are still other reasons behind clicking.
Communication by clicking
Unlike other different birds that have many different ways of communicating, woodpeckers are not birds that make sounds, and this means that you will not find woodpeckers making sounds or singing. Instead of tweeting this bird clicks wood, and it is interesting that this click It helps scare away predators, and helps attract mates.
Click to build nests
Most birds build their homes by collecting straw and twigs, but the woodpecker carves his house in the trees through his ability to click, as he clicks in the wood causing holes on the tree and thus he has built a nest for him.
In fact, the woodpecker performs two types of clicking, and if he is clicking in the trees in the form of multiple small holes in the tree, this means that he is searching for food, but if he is making large holes, this means that he is building his house in this tree.
The ability of a woodpecker to click
Many birds do not have this unique ability to tap in the wood, and unlike the rest of the birds the woodpecker has a very strong beak, which helps him in the process of clicking in the wood continuously without causing this constant clicking throughout his life to any damage to his beak, whether the cause is This is the small holes in which he searches for food or the large holes through which you make his home.
Woodpecker is able to click ten thousand times a day without any injuries, as its necks contain lollipops and shocks preparing to balance the concussion and vibration that occurs during the click, so that this click does not negatively affect the rest of his body and neck.
Teach the earth by clicking
All living creatures leave a mark on their soil, so that they distinguish them from others and so that no one encroaches on their region. On the region, as it places the marks by clicking, then clicking on the wood itself is an announcement to the rest of the birds from the woodpecker and other birds that he is in this region.
Use click to attack
Although woodpecker does not click in trees or wood in general until it harms nature, but it uses clicking in and damaging wood as a kind of tactic to survive, and even maintains its place from being tampered with by humans, and this is even to ensure their safety, and on For example, Radio CBC has indicated that woodpeckers caused many damages that caused thousands of dollars in losses to the Prince George Hotel, until they took part of the building as their nests.
