Every year, it never fails. Right around April, I have an annoying woodpecker that perches itself outside my wall in my room and starts pecking away at 7:30 AM like clockwork. I'll bang on the wall to scare it off, but about 30 minutes later, it makes a return visit. Thankfully it never stays there for more than a month, and dosn't peck itself out during the night. But is there anyway to discourage it from sitting on the side of the house? I seem to remember an episode of home Improvement where they had the same problem and used a wooden owl to scare it away. But any other solutions?
