Persistent woodpecker

Yes, he is quite persistent. He is leaving the corner trim board of my house looking like Swiss cheese.



The one that came by this afternoon either was a red-bellied sapsucker or a hairy woodpecker. According to the bird guide I looked it, it looked to be the hairy woodpecker but the hole pattern seemed more like the red-bellied sapsucker.

Either way, they love that corner of the house. Apparently they get attracted y the buzzing in the power liens and mistake that for the insects that they think are hiding in the wood.
