Take hold of the woodpecker and slide it to the top of the wooden pole. Tap his head lightly and he falls in an amusing series of jerks as if he is pecking at the tree trunk rod. The woodpecker on a pole demonstrates beautifully natural forces at work: the push takes him to the top, the tap initiates gravity, the spring he is on vibrates causing intermittent friction that forces the bird to fall in a series of tiny jerks. Vibration isn't a force, but is caused by the action of a force or forces. Approximate height: 33-38 cms.
