Bird Trivia:

Are Mute Swans really mute?

No, they aren’t really mute, but their voices are weak and seldom used except for grunts, menacing hisses, and snorts. During breeding season, they may utter puppy-like barks.

Which group of birds can turn their heads to the greatest extreme?

You guessed correctly, the owls! An owl can turn its head about 280 degrees and then quickly swivel it around in the opposite direction.

Which American woodpecker migrates the farthest?

The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker migrates to the West Indies and south to central Panama.

Amazing!
