That ‘drummer with wings’ you’re hearing can damage your property!
If you hear rapid tapping in your yard, chances are you’re hearing a woodpecker at work. Look for a bird with a red head and black and white marks along its body. These birds also have short legs with two sharp-clawed backward-pointed toes. Woodpeckers can also be found at feeders containing suet and sunflower seeds.
Why are woodpeckers in my yard?

- These shelters can include nests pecked into dead trees. Woodpeckers can also nest in abandoned holes in a stumps, fence posts, or utility poles. They can also live in bird houses
Are they dangerous to my family?
- They are not a danger to people, but woodpeckers can damage wood structures, gutters, vents, metal siding, drain pipes and roof vents
