-Why can woodpecker drill without becoming hopelessly dizzy? The answer seems to lie in the design of the woodpecker’s head. The spongy, elastic connective tissue joining the bones between the skull and the beak absorb shock, as do the large muscles that extend over the woodpecker’s head and behind each of its ears. Watch some woodpeckers do what they do best, drilling.
