Some have roosters I have a woodpecker

Since our move last fall, we experienced autumn and winter in our new home. Both seasons were very beautiful; all the trees around us were bright lively colours and the winter was well a winter wonderland!

We are now experiencing our first spring. Proving to be another beautiful season. The ice has broken up and the river is a sparkling bright blue again; boats and freighters are starting to make their way up and down the seaway. Another new thing for our family is a lovely woodpecker who has decided to make the area around our home his/her surroundings.

Actually I'm using the word 'lovely' very very loosely! Every morning at quarter to five in the morning, this dang woodpecker decides to perch him/herself on our satellite antenna to peck it! This wakes the whole family up! I could be wrong but isn't this damn bird suppose to be pecking at a tree for bugs????

How can I get this thing to go for the trees instead of our antenna???? I hope he/she stops soon because I'm going to have to start going to bed at 9pm to get a good 8 hour sleep.

Is this a country thing to have a crazy woodpecker???

So to all you early risers out there.... I will be thinking of you at 5am as I hope you are thinking of me! :)

Happy Monday ;)


  1. OH Anita, I am so sorry for your early wake up calls. I did have to laugh though...it is funny. I am always up at 5am lately so I will be thinking about you!

  2. yeah, it is pretty funny ~ but I don't want that cheeky woodpecker to think that I actually like it.. maybe he'll stop. I think I'll name him Tom :)

  3. This is why country folk have shot guns ;)


Comments welcome.. just be nice :)
