Which tree species has a fire resistant bark? Were those tunnels created by digging or eating? Pretending that you are a woodpecker, what does it take to chip away at a tree to find food for your chicks?

Are all red berries poisonous? What about the purple berries? How do you remove the sting from stinging nettles so that you can enjoy them for supper?
