How to use woodpecker in a sentence?

  1. Marina Pacheco:

  2. Marina Pacheco:

  3. Tom Robbins:

Years later, Amanda used the woodpecker experiment as a model for understanding capitalism, Communism, Christianity, and all other systems that traffic in future rewards rather than in present realities.

  4. Mehmet Murat ildan:
