I Have A Woody

Guess who woke me up AGAIN by banging on my shutters at 6am?

My neighbors are going to think I'm crazy for hanging out my window, yelling and pounding on the side of my house, but this bird better be ready for a turf war.

I hated the cartoon too.

I hated that damn cartoon.

Funny story: My parents were being woken by a noisy gaggle of crows day-after-day. One day, after many sleepless nights I'm sure...my father threw up the sash armed with a BB Gun. You can only imagine what the neighbors thought. ;o)

I feel your pain. We had one last year that drove me crazy and left a nice big hole in my house.

So far ours have remained in trees - but I bet plastic shutters and vinyl siding isn't much fun to peck on.

I hope your Woody goes away soon...

We get the Robins every year, same dumb robins, banging on our windows, doors and basement ... we have the screening on our windows so they see themselves and start fighting ... let me know what solution works!!!

We have a local woodpecker that loves metal (I guess since the sound carries) ... including the street lamp outside of our house and recently, the metal chimney hat right above our bedroom wall. Luckily, he also has a nice range so that we only get the early morning torture every other month or so.

We had a couple that would bang on the metal gutters. It sounded like machine gun fire.

I heard that in the woodpecker world, the one who makes the best noise gets the prettiest woodpecker girlfriend. As soon as mating season was over, so was the noise.

Hee hee, you said woody. :)

Yesterday morning I went outside to chase one off of our gutter (a woodpecker, that is). It was banging away and was ridiculously loud. Right outside our bedroom. ARGH!

There's a "morning wood" joke in there somewhere. I just know it.

Dirty lil' 'pecker. Needs to be taught some manners.

As an aside: this morning I was awoken by the sound of a neighbour tuning up his chainsaw. WTF?

Last spring, we had only been in our house 9 months or so. Several mornings in a row we heard this horrible noise coming from the fireplace. Like water pipes rattling, but there are no water pipes in that wall. I was v. freaked out by this and thought maybe something was wrong with the gas line going to the fireplace. Finally one morning, I decided to investigate, as just turning the radio up was no longer working as an avoidance technique. I went outside to sniff around and see if I smelled a gas leak. And what was it? Stupid woodpecker hammering away on the flashing around the chimney. The sound reverberated down the chimney into the house.

Jeez. I just hate nature.

(And no, I am not being facetious. Nature would kill us if we gave it half a chance. That is why we live in houses. And have bug spray and sunscreen. "Camping" is just nature's plan to lure us into the woods so it can kill us. I don't even like to drive my car off pavement. Thar's bears out thar.)

We had to finally have someone come and remove ours. My husband wanted to buy a gun and shoot them, which somehow I wasn't that into.
