My next door townhouse neighbor passed away a few weeks ago and apart from some visits from relatives the place is empty. Today I hear what sounded like someone working over there hammering and such but no cars in the drive. Then I look out the back window and see this HUGE wodpecker working on the deck. I ran out on my deck and chased him off. A few minutes later he was back, I chase him off again... then rinse and repeat for a bunch of times. Now he is going around the corner of the deck that I can't see so I have no idea what he is up to. I go out then come home hours later and here he comes again. Damn, that bird is persistent. So what is he after? Can he do serious damage? I mean he looks huge, not the little 'peckers that hit my bird feeded in the winter.
