This Week’s Program: Animal Architects

We don’t typically think of animals when we think of architects and building, but many of our wild animal neighbors are habitat architects. A habitat is an animal’s home, the place it finds everything it needs to survive. Through shelter construction and other activities, many animals build habitat for themselves and other species too. A woodpecker is an expert habitat architect. By drilling holes in trees for feeding and nesting, woodpeckers provide many cavity nesting birds, like a saw-whet owl, a safe nest it couldn’t build on its own. A Squam Lakes Natural Science Center naturalist will show you three live wild animal architects and the habitats they build. (2017 Library Summer Reading Program)
