It's not what you think! Unless of course you were imagining a woodpecker trying to get some goodies from our aluminum siding...
It is SO loud.
For some reason, when I hear a tree being pecked upon, I think "Ooh a woodpecker! I wonder what tree it is in..." and the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming.
But when I hear the front of my house being pecked upon, I think "Ugh! Woodpecker! I wonder if it will fly and stay away if I throw something at it..." and my nerves are frayed and my feet are stomping.
Next month when the roofers are roofing, it probably won't be an issue.
