Woodpeckers have long sticky tongues. They go "tap, tap, tap." And when you're taking a practice run at flying, watch out for the chair in front of you. You could bump your nose. Pre-schoolers from Bagley, Bemidji and Laporte were entertained and informed by park naturalist Sandra Lichter Thursday as they learned what makes woodpeckers peck.
