Guess Who Is Knocking?

I was minding my own business checking email, returning comments, and thinking about what I want to post when suddenly I heard terrible knockings. I recognized the noises that woodpecker does, but the sound today was very sharp since it was metal that I heard.

Sure enough, it was this gorgeous woodpecker, pecking at the corner of my roof and hit the metal part of it. He/she was at it for quite a while, and insisted on that particular area. Today was a busy day for woodpeckers as I saw at least three others around my home.

I wonder if they are trying to get winter storage or something. I noticed the movement of woodpeckers as well. This is an awsome post.

Icy, how cool is that to have those little guys around. You got a great shot.

That's too funny. My mom used to knock back when a woodpecker knocked on our house. There would be a brief pause and then the woodpecker would knock again. It was almost as though they were having a conversation. LOL

Hmmm. I hope they aren't finding bugs there!

How lucky to be able to observe the woodpeckers so closely.

It looks like a young one. Maybe he hasn't figured out the difference between roofs and trees yet!

Lovely birds!
Here in Finland I saw and heard woodpeckers knock on a street lamp during mating season - it resonated very far. :)

ahhhh, such a beautiful guest, I would be so excited if I hear him knocking on our door, oh no, not on our door, on the tree nearby :)

So how did you even take those photos? Being that the bird is so high up?
