I have a woodpecker that comes into my backyard every morning and hammers on a metal shed.

u/ADHDuruss May 18 '21

It's called drumming, he's either trying to scare off rivals or get laid. The louder the better in his mind. Woodpeckers are natures head bangers, so a METAL shed is perfect.

u/mandalore237 May 18 '21

Well best of luck to him then

head banger and metal, sounds like a perfect description for woodpeckers

u/MuhNamesTyler May 17 '21

Imagine the heartbreak he endures every day when he doesn’t even get thru, he probably thinks he is a failure

u/PandoraRose_16 May 17 '21

That gave me a chuckle

u/Alan_Smithee_ May 18 '21

That’s not the point. They also hammer to attract a mate, and they’ve adapted to using metal for more volume.

First time I heard a woodpecker hammering on my furnace chimney vent, i thought the furnace had shit itself.

u/mandalore237 May 17 '21

At least he keeps trying

Something something eternity, something something mountains, something something pecking.

u/8-bit-brandon May 18 '21

We had a cast iron stove at my childhood house with a metal stove pipe. Woodpecker would stand on the cap and hammer all day

u/Bmoreboy91 May 18 '21

Had one that did it on the side of my brick house

I'm going to find you, bug, even if I have to tear down your entire house.

u/SkycladLife May 17 '21

Man this tree seriously offended this guy somehow.

u/Redhotcatholiclove May 17 '21

The tree is just in the wrong place at the wrong time. It's whatever the tree's going to land on that seriously pissed the dude off.

u/Down_Low_Too_Slow May 17 '21

I'm not a woodpecker-ologist. Is it normal to make such a large, destructive hole?

12

u/teeohdeedee123 May 18 '21

Yes. Completely normal.

u/Anon4573 May 18 '21

Who gave meth to the woodpecker?

u/skateslowsucktoes May 18 '21

Hell yeah, fuck that tree.

u/PreviousReaction2 May 17 '21

Why would this be deadly for human brain cells but not for the wood pecker?

6

u/TimeToHavePun May 17 '21

He’s just lumbering on

7

u/maisweh May 18 '21

You wood think that. He’s probably just board.

5

u/TimeToHavePun May 18 '21

But it seems like such a bird-en

u/Agreeable_year_8350 May 18 '21

Their tongues wrap around the back of their skull to distribute force evenly. That's why they don't immediately die like we would if we tried doing this.

u/Guacanagariz May 17 '21

The woodpecker: “F you buddy, that’s why! Heh-heh-heh-HEHHHH-heh”

Holy shoot that seems more like something out of a horror movie

u/Fattydaddy91 May 18 '21

That's actually a raven that's gone crazy because his wife divorced him and took his house so he's chopping it down.

u/HairOfTheChin May 18 '21

It ain't much, but it's honest work.

😱 WOODPECKERS CASUALLY CHOP DOWN TREES AND Y'ALL HAVE THE AUDACITY TO CALL AUSTRALIA DANGEROUS?! 😱

Nothing chops down trees here! You have to watch out for spiders and dropbears dropping out of the trees, but NOTHING WILL DROP A TREE ON YOUR HEAD! 💀💀💀

1

u/Sadsasuke_E May 18 '21

Well it’s easyer to see a tree fall then a spider walking up to you and killing you in your sleep >:)

u/bluepancakes18 May 18 '21

True. Or hiding in your clothes on the washing line 😂💀🕷️

Killed one of those peckers yesterday, fucker was tearing up my tree!

u/hardcoresean84 May 18 '21

Surprisingly effective aren't they? See all the bits falling off, that tree is coming DOWN!

1

u/supersilakka May 18 '21

I'm certain some "woodpecker fun facts" tell how bad too much pecking is for their health in some way and also they sometimes die pecking too much, or render themselves unable to reproduce or some shit like that.
