They bang their heads into wood. Does it hurt? No! Woodpeckers don’t get headaches.

Strong bones and muscles shield the brain. The tongue wraps around the inside of the bird’s head. The tongue is like a pillow. It protects the brain from all that banging. God’s design of woodpeckers is perfect. His design of you is too! Read Psalm 139:14. “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
