ah, property damage

So, I heard a loud whacking noise earlier. It sounded as if somebody were hammering on my cabin. I didn't think the landlady had any reason to be doing that, so I peeped out the window. I didn't see anybody at first, but then I angled my head around and saw, to my surprise, a huge pileated woodpecker systematically demolishing one of the lower front porch rails. It was pretty much hanging upside down while doing it.

For the record, woodpeckers will fly away if you yell "scat!" loud enough.
