    I don't often see any pterodactyl woodpeckers around my house. Downy are fairly common. What I do have that is about the same size as the pterodactyl are flickers. The male one is particularly attracted to the metal cap on my fireplace chimney. Normally they will peck on hollow snag trees to make a drumming sound to attract a mate. But the sound from something metal and hollow travels much further, and these boys are really into advertising to hustle up a female before nesting season. With daylight saving time beginning this weekend, and ever earlier sunrises, I'll soon be waking up to this little $%^ b@$^&*( way to early in the morning. Once he gets a gal friend, life in the morning will return to normal.

    Now back to pterodactyls, which are really cool birds.

    I saw a woodpecker try to peck a hole in a concrete post once. That didn't end well.
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    On metal pole, it sounds like traditional phone ring.

    This is EXACTLY what I am going through!!! I have a new house which is all natural gas. I thought there was some kind of problem with the gas. I was just going to call the gas company and went out and there on my metal chimney cap was a Flicker drumming on the cap. Scared the mess out of me.

    He needs to hurry up and find a girlfriend. I am tired of my stove pipe being used as Tinder for this Flicker. Haha...and that isn't K()De
