Spring Wildlife: Woodpecker

Ok, technically the woodpecker is called a Northern Flicker, and it has been pecking out a hole in the building in Production's corner. (They have said the pecking gets pretty loud at times).

Since our building is in a park, the animals and birds are protected, so we can't move or disrupt them. I went outside to snap a few photos, and lucky for me, the woodpecker peeked out to take a look. Pretty cool!

How cool! :) We have a crazy woodpecker in our yard. It's like he only likes one kind of seed in our bird feeder. The rest he throws out. But the squirrels like him for that. ;)

Thats funny.

one time we had a bird fall in our stove from the chimney (It wasn't on, thankfully)We heard if tapping on the inside and thought our house was haunted. We let it go once we found out lol

We have a woodpecker at our house that lives in our telephone pole.

I had a woodpecker who wanted to be my new roomie last year. Thankfully, my house wasn't in a park so he had to find a new home after we fixed the hole when he was gone. They are very loud.

Ahh, I have the same problem and man is it driving me crazy. I can't remove the nest until the babies are born. So until then, instead of a cock-doodle-doo,I'll be waking up to peck peck peck.
