New Jersey Woodpecker Education

We have a variety of interesting woodpeckers that call New Jersey home. The Dinky Downy, Huge Hairy, Red Bellied, Red-Headed, Pileated, Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker and Northern Flicker.  They make for a fun focused lesson on birds as students examine their weights, coloration, food preference, beak and skull anatomy and make a suet style mix of crisco and bird seed to squeeze into the nooks n crannies of the forest to provide an easy treat.
