"Why do woodpeckers peck on wood?

They do this because they are looking for food. Termites and other wood dwelling creatures for example are a good source of protein for them. Woodpeckers also raise their young in trees by pecking away a large hole in a tree! Woodpeckers also drum on trees to communicate territoriality." (

It is 6 a.m. on a mid-March morning. The seasonal rat-a-tat-tat has begun.

In the past I have suffered in silence -- quietly putting up with the predawn perturbations of these pileated peckerheads.

No more! This year I am officially putting it in writing. And duct taping my choleric communique firmly over every tree-hole within earshot.


Re: Territory
I got here first. It's all mine.
Can YOU hear ME now?
