You know I like watching woodpeckers
How they look for food in dead trees, live trees, and even in the ground
Natures little jack hammar
but when those little basters start nailing MY HOUSE THE CUTENESS ENDS :mad:

I think we have one with a bent beek here. He likes to rattle away on our tin roof, first thing in the morning.
Still haven't figured out what kind of wood-pecker it is, he's never there when I get dressed and go out to scare him off.
All I know is he's a pecker ...LOL

Hunterman, your problems may be going beyond the fact you got peckers on your house. If they are coming back, they may be finding food in your wood siding...

Tony, therer is a type of caulk that you can apply to the affected area that will get rid of them. Check with a pest control company for the name of it.
