He's Baaack! (Part 2)

Just finished covering up the last of this week's woodpecker holes.  I decided to count how many pieces of aluminum and cat food lids I have stapled onto my house in the last 4 years - the count is close to 500!!!  And each piece of metal is covering at least one hole if not more.

Despite the fact that my woodpecker is now working  side by side with his lovely wife to destroy my shingles, I do believe the strips of garbage bags, holographic ribbons and rotting windsocks are beginning to have an effect of actually keeping them away.  Plus the house looks so gay festooned with these streamers!  Like it is decorated for some weird holiday dreamed up by Tim Burton or Gahan Wilson.
