The little downy woodpecker (6" tall) is the most common backyard woodpecker in North America. Like all woodpeckers they have reinforced skulls that spread the impact force and that cushion and protect their brains. Here, a lucky shot at 1/500 sec shows the shockwaves that resonate through their bodies.
