The ban applies equally to feeding for recreational viewing as well as hunting. An NRC action on October 10, 2008 made the ban permanent.
OK, it's gotta be a wood pecker drumming on metal. Lots of videos on youtube of this.
I would say that the ticket.
I've had one beating on my satalite dish on my rooftop for the past couple of years.
It only happens in the Spring just after daylight. Talk about a wake up call.
When that pecker is not at my house he likes the neighbor's stainless steel woodburning chimney pipe.
At least I'm not the only one on my street waken up early.
