Survival of the fittest?
Right now, as I'm typing this, I've got some idiotic woodpecker outside my bedroom window banging it's brains out on my air conditioner. If Darwin is right how could this sort of idiotic behavior not have been bred out of this bird? How did this species not go the way of some of the other Brainiacs of the Animal Kingdom like Triceratops, dodos and unicorns?
I thought natural selection took care of this sort of stuff. That's why we have woodpeckers but we don't have rockpeckers, mountainlionpeckers or peckerpeckers anymore.

Dang! While the first two would most assuredly be amusing, it sure would be nice if EVERYONE could have a good peckerpecker!!

I don't know about that, but I wouldn't say no to a peckerpucker.

actually, i thought the randomabusepecker was extinct, ladies and gentlemen, a RARITY... if you think about it in the wild, they WOULDNT survive long, going up to a lion and saying "your mum's a pussy!" just going to lead to mass extinction...

Yes it does. Or it could be a meaninglesscommentpecker. An often ignored species. :biggrin:

I bet the loudness of the pecking works like a mating call. If a male can find something that makes a real racket, the females probably think, "Whoa, that's one helluva pecker!"

A woodpecker needs to apply a great deal of force to bury his acorn nuts into his unwilling host.

i don't think trees have that much will. Or maybe they enjoy having a woodpeckers nuts shoved in them...
