Red-bellied Woodpecker’s can stick out their tongues almost 2 inches past the end of their beaks. The tip is barbed and their spit is sticky, which makes it easier to snatch prey from deep crevices. Males generally have longer tongues than females, possibly allowing a breeding pair to forage in slightly different nooks to maximize their use of available food.
This is a female. I’ve not seen a male. Males head is fully red on the back.
Thanks for the peanut suet!!
