The last two mornings at dawn (of course the little *&#$s chose the weekend to do this), some bird has landed on the eave of my house right outside my bedroom window and started pecking. Hard. And Loud. I smacked the window and it squeaked and flew away but 15 minutes later (just as I was finally back asleep), it came back and resumed the pecking. Same thing another 15 minutes later. Aaaarg. Finally around 7:30 it left for good.
I noticed upon inspecting the eave that there is a pencil-width sized hole in the eave. I also saw a carpenter bee checking out the hole from the underside of the eave. I don’t know if the bird caused the hole or found an existing hole (maybe made by the bee) and started pecking it.
What kind of bird is doing this and how can I get rid of it?
