Woodpeckers build the most elaborate acorn granaries – you can't miss it!

Most woodpecker species peck into wood in search of food or for nest building. The acorn woodpecker does it to create amazing acorn warehouses.


Woodpeckers drill into tree trunks so aggressively that any other animal attempting the same feat would end up with a serious concussion. But not these birds! They possess some absolutely unbelievable building skills.

Let's discover more about acorn woodpeckers as a species and take a look at their stunning granaries, which can without doubt be considered works of art.

I saw a documentary about this in Big Bend National Park in Texas. A rogue bear came along and are many of the acorns. Poor bird was helpless to defend his cache!!😊

James Williams, thank you! Another fact to remember! I'll have to ask a friend of mine who is really into birds, if she knew that! And to think people think birds are dumb! 😊👍

Oregon is in the north west not the south west!! Although Southern California might be considered south west, Northern California is definitely not considered south west!! Interesting story regarding the woodpecker though 🐦.

flanderschristy, a common misconception. they put the acorns in the holes and as they rot they attract insects. The Woodpeckers eat the insects.

I never knew why woodpeckers drilled holes in trees & always wondered why & now I know. Also didn't know that they ate acorns & now it all makes sense. I always assumed they ate insects, worms, etc. Great story, thank you!
