Woodpecker Nest

Unfortunately this branch snapped out in the wind and has exposed this old nest. It is possibly an old Green Woodpecker nest. Green woodpeckers mainly feed on ants they have such a large tongue (10cm) that it has to curl around its skull. The tongue has barbs on it to pick up all the ants yummy!
