How hard are wood pecker beaks?



  1. 0 Votes

    The woodpecker’s beak is much harder and sharper than the average bird. The sharp beak is used like a chisel and is continuously growing because of this. The beak hits the tree with a speed of 6-7 m (20-23 ft) per second. It is possible for a woodpecker to crack its beak while drumming.
