Another dumb member of my family

While we’re waiting to see if any more eggs are coming, look at this short video taken of our house. This is a dumb bird although I may be just as dumb because even I don’t know if there’s another egg coming.

That is one dumb woodpecker. He’s doing his thing on a metal chimney that the propane gas fireplace releases gases. He’s done this off and on for years and the sound coming out of the fireplace is a lot louder because of an echo chamber effect.  He isn’t going to score any insects for food that are in the metal so the peeps speculate that he’s trying to attract a mate. Just a second here, what about me????? I’m available and  a proven egg layer. Now, that metalpecker is really dumb because he doesn’t want lovely me.

Yes, I am desperate.

  1. I have that Woody Woodpeckers mate. Why the one at my house uses our flashing, siding, garbage can lid. Yep my Woody Woodpecker is addicted to metal also.

    • Is he attached? Is he eligible?

      • No he is single all alone in the world but I think his love is metal to Rat a tat tat Rat a tat tat tat on. He wakes us up at the crack of dawn, it is my job to run outside barking to chase him away. I will tell him to head west young woody head west.

  2. maybe he becomes famous once as a member of the blue man group? and he didn’t want you? the loveliest parrot ever? … yes, it must be a dumb bird… :o(

  3. OMWP WHAt was that CRAZY guy thinkin??? Maybe he is trying to become Famous like Ringo STARling….

  4. I agree if he doesn’t want you then something is very wrong with him besides being dumb.

    Have a terrific day. My best to your peeps. 🙂

  5. Were you on a trampoline while taking that video?

  6. Kismet, you blog made me as today. I think you should hold our for Mr Right. You are far too smart and articulate for this dumb metal pounder. Mama and I really dislike Woodpeckers anyway ’cause they peck holes in our house.

  7. If he keeps at it, I think he may need some advil for his headache.

  8. I was thinking the same thing about the Morse code……….maybe he’s asking you for a date??? It certainly should be investigated!

  9. He wouldnt score any points at this house!!


  10. He sounds like a mini jackhammer.

    Aroo to you,

  11. Must be a build up of gas that’s made him so crazy!

  12. We had a red ringed neck pecker, pecking on our house. It was ANNOYING. It made a huge dent in a lot of the palm trees in the area. They eventually died from the assault.Lots of luck in getting rid of it.

  13. What a nut… The woodpecker I mean…. yeah.

  14. Hummmm…think the paint chips might be good?

    The Mad Scots

  15. I think ya is gettin desperate Kismet.

  16. Holy burdie crap! What is goin’ on there in AZ?! Burdies all tryin’ to gets their groove on, and just missin’ the mark….I thinks he knows that there is a sexy blue feathered friend in theres and he is tryin’ to make sweet sweet music….okays, Marvin Gaye he is not! BOL

  17. You need to ask the Peeps to play matchmaker Kismet! Surely they can see how important this is to you!?
    Wally & Sammy

  18. You wouldn’t want that dumb bird around anyway precious parrot.

  19. Don’t take it personal K-bird, besides you can do far better. Pecking on metal can be the proverbial trolling for a mate but more than likely it’s a signal establishing territory. Woodpeckers are notoriously territorial. Happy weekend.

  20. Kismet can’t be desperate – -! Hahaha~
