It’s not usually a good sign if a Hairy Woodpecker is excavating insects and creating holes in a building’s siding. In the Woodpecker’s defense, he didn’t cause the original moisture damage, which attracted an insect population and reliable food source. After several decades, there were other areas of the clubhouse with failed siding, but the west side belonged to the Woodpecker. They are skittish birds, hearing them more often than seeing. During the long, quiet months at the clubhouse there were days when the Woodpecker visits were a welcomed interruption. I will miss his calls, rhythmic tapping, and catching a glimpse of tail feathers against the kitchen window. This has been a good gig for the Woodpecker, but soon the gig will be up when damaged siding and framework are replaced. This morning was his last visit and that’s a good sign for the clubhouse. I will listen for him as his search continues for insects in nearby tress.

Please help maintain a safe environment and use the side door off parking lot (north side) as a temporary entrance. Drop-box use is still available evenings and weekends, please watch your step.
