Head-Banging woodpeckers could be mutating into migrating ducks, it's all down to global warming!

(NOT EDITED) A German woodpecker, pecking as woodpeckers tend to do, took its genetically embedded habit a peck too far, and pecked itself into unconsciousness!

Luckily, passing ramblers, listening joyfully to the woodpecker pecking on a dead tree, saw the woodpecker drop like a stone. It hit the leaf-covered ground, which saved its life because it was a rather soft landing. The ramblers rushed over to see if 'Woody' was still alive, picked it up, and rushed it to a local hospice filled with Covid 19 patients. They then referred the ramblers to a local vet.

Just in Time, the vet examined the woodpecker, and decided to operate on its tiny brain. After coming out of a full anesthetic, alive, the diagnosis was; too much head-banging caused the woodpecker to lose consciousness. After X-raying its brain, it seems as though it suffered minor brain-damage too, AAAGH!

The Woodpecker is now recovering in Intensive Care, and it seems his pecking career is over! One of the ramblers decided to adopt this brain-damaged woodpecker. She promised the vet she would not allow it to peck anymore, feed it with enough insects, and keep him in a huge budgie cage with no dead trees in sight.

A professor of woodpeckers has told the new owner that woodpeckers never usually have brain-damage through pecking too hard, and this is a very unique bird. He requested that the woodpecker be brought to his university for further examination, because woodpeckers might be evolving in a strange way, and mutating into migrating ducks because of global warming.

Wacky, German Heavy Metal head-bangers, have donated 6000,00 Euros to pay for the pecker's operation, because without head-banging woodpeckers, they would be listening to Beyonce!
