Oh, Those Woodpeckers!

Not the greatest shot, since I had to hold the camera waaaay above my head to take this, but you can see the systematic approach that the woodpeckers use while finding bugs to eat!

This is one of my oak trees, but the woodpeckers around here will also drill holes in the phone company casings, which are plastic and METAL! Which of course causes all the phone service to go out... Which I guess means that, while woodpeckers have very strong beaks, they don't have very strong brains...

or they just don't get very many phone calls?

They pulverize their poor little brains every day, so it's no surprise, I guess--LOL! That is a cool shot of the woodpecker holes, though. :)
