You may remember the awesome encounter Doug and I had with Red-cockaded Woodpeckers at the Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area from this post. If you are some kind of idiot savant you might even remember that the last image of a Red-cockaded Woodpecker that I shared was of the bird holding a grub in its bill. What you didn’t know unless you are some kind of a psychic is that Doug managed to shoot some slow-motion video of the woodpecker getting that grub, video that he was kind enough to share.

Check out the Red-cockaded Woodpecker getting its grub on – it’s well worth two minutes of your life!
