So I bought a house at the lake which was constructed in 2006. It has your typical California stucco siding and a tile roof. I have a serious problem with Woodpeckers. At 6am every morning, three of these gorgeous birds start hammering on my stucco and tile. It seems a little odd to me that they are drawn to these materials.
Outside of shooting the little bastards which I would rather not do - I need them to stop. They are loud enough to wake us up in the morning and they are doing massive damage to my stucco exterior and cracking my tile roof.
