Heard them last week but left for a work trip and thought I would deal with it upon return and didn't realize it was nesting holes with mineral wool all over the ground. Don't slack off, because the work is now more

We had one for awhile…he must’ve been really stupid, ‘cause we could hear him going to town on metal.

He gave up after a week…

Maybe you know this already, but that's a northern flicker, a type of woodpecker. They hammer on metal during the spring as a way to attract a mate.

Interesting, I didn’t know that.
