Rat-a-tat-tat

Walking along a path at Encanto Park, I kept hearing an odd rapid rat-a-tat-tat noise. I looked up and saw this woodpecker tapping away on this lamp post.



When I got a little too close, he flew off to try his beak on the next street light.

When I visit my brother in Tucson, I am awakened each morning to the woodpecker rat-a-tat-tatting on the chimney pipe. What are they thinking?

Maybe he's hoping to evolve from woodpecker to metal drill.

This made me laugh! Poor little guy is a bit confused. Fun find and great shot! These little guys are hard to capture.

How odd. I wonder if there are bugs that were attracted by the light left behind on the glass.
