Answer to Chris' question

Chris is one of my babysitters. He asked this question, and we're going to post what he asked.

Hi Arden! Your blog is amazing! Great job so far! I've been pondering a question and I was hoping you could help me out. A few weeks ago I went camping at the mouth of the Two-Hearted River in the Upper Peninsula. Every morning I woke up to the sound of a Woodpecker. Do you know what kind of Woodpecker this may have been? Thanks!

We went to google and typed in "woodpeckers in the upper peninsula," and then we read about Black-Backed Woodpeckers. We listened to its call. Chris, is this the call you heard?

Facts we learned while making this post:
It lives in the forest, and eats the larvae of wood bearing beetles. It builds a nest in a hole in the trunk of a tree.

  1. Thanks for the great response, Arden! That sounds really similar to the call I heard. The picture you found was really helpful too, because I never actually saw the Woodpecker, I only heard it! Thanks!
