"Did you know that the woodpecker's tongue is so long that it goes backward and wraps around its brain?? Really!! It's very funny!"
"Did you know that woodpecker pecks holes to dig for bugs, but a sapsucker pecks holes so that the tree sap will come out and bugs get stuck on the sap so he can eat them? It's like those bug lollipops!"
And there we stood in amazement, children and moms, for a good half hour watching this bird. Just hours before, we were at the checkout of London Drugs and the cashier wondered why Serena's not in school. Little did she know that Serena was in school - her classroom is just a lot bigger and is not bound by walls.
p.s. We looked through our bird book when we got home and found out that the bird was a red-breasted sapsucker.
