The birds hid their acorns in a wireless antenna in Central California. A video that’s going viral displays technicians opening a compartment on the antenna and releasing a flood of acorns. In all, an expected 300 pounds (35 to 50 gallons) of nuts fell out. Walter Koenig, a senior researcher with the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, says he’s pretty sure the acorn woodpecker (Melanerpes formicivorus) was behind the act.
