Green Woodpeckers have specially evolved salivary glands which emit a sticky substance onto their very long tongues, enabling the gathering of thousands of ants which live just under the surface of unimproved grassland and lawns. Their bills are relatively weak and they don’t drum on trees like Spotted Woodpeckers do. Male and female adults are very similar but close inspection shows the male have red in their black moustaches, as does this one. Conditions: Sunny spells and breezy. Temperature: Max 20- Min15C.
