Why do woodpeckers drill holes in trees with their long and narrow beaks? First, woodpeckers strike trees to find insects to eat. Second, woodpeckers peck trees to build nests. Lastly, woodpeckers are not vocal, so they make tapping sounds to communicate. Their pecking behavior is a big part of their lives, so it is easy for them to get brain damage. However, woodpeckers can protect their brains with their long tongues. They wrap around their brains and absorb shock.
