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. Then they got to watch the guest of honor, a woodpecker, do his thing. (Sarah Smith / Enterprise)
