Woodpecker part deux – a tie? A pyrrhic victory?

And so I thought I had managed to keep the awl-beaked bird at bay by backing all the knotholes in the siding with metal. He proved me wrong with diligence (and a curious nasal squeak that sounds like a dog toy and rodent hybridized) that’s hard to come by in the construction tradeā€”he’s started to widen the gap between the siding boards. This is obviously unacceptable, so I’ve resorted to deterrent measures, hopefully they work…

I’ll be honest, in a moment of rage and weakness, I started investigating killing the sucker, but it takes a permit, they’re protected, and it’s not a permanent solution and it really doesn’t sit well with my ethics.
