I am a huge fan of woodpeckers. I think they are beautiful and awesome.
They spend their lives banging their head against trees. Reminds me of my Corporate gig.
But here is the thing. It turns out that my absolute favorite woodpecker is an asshole.
The link below is a short video that shows part of the problem.
These guys show up at my feeders and spend 90% of their time throwing food onto the ground.
One day one of these jerks showed up at a peanut feeder for my squirrels and tossed 15 peanuts onto the ground before he finally found one that he liked.
What the heck, woodpecker??
What was wrong with the first 15 peanuts that you felt compelled to toss them over your shoulder? Those things cost money, dang it!
Grrrr…I am liking my squirrels more than my birds a little bit more now.
