Acorn woodpeckers are active, sociable and noisy, doing a lot of "yakking" as they travel back and forth among trees or to telephone poles. Often they will dive in the air for insects and return again and again to the same look-out perch.
They live in oak woods and gather quantities of acorns which they store in dead tree limbs, fence posts and telephone poles. Their favorite food is the insects and their larvae which live in the acorns.
