Pileated Woodpeckers 007
This photo of a young pileated I took a couple of years ago. It shows just how long their tongues are. The tongue is longer than the woodpecker’s head. The tongue doesn’t start at the back of the throat like us. It starts at the base of the top beak goes all the way around the head over the top, back and bottom of the scull and then comes out the throat and mouth.
