Acorn woodpeckers are unique in the woodpecker world because of their intricate social patterns. They work in groups to raise their young and store acorns in a communal “granary” for the winter. While in theory similar to squirrels, the acorn woodpecker granary is characterized by hundreds of little holes drilled in the side of a tree, each one holding a single nut. You can identify acorn woodpeckers by their striking clown-like feather patterns and their unmistakable “waka waka” call.
