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 trade—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.
