Woodpeckers are very recognizable and are known for the loud, pecking noise they make. They can be quite a nuisance to Charlottesville homeowners. They will live wherever they can nest and they will make noise no matter where they are. While these birds prefer the trees, they can also find their way into your attic or the siding on your home or near your chimney.
The pecking noise they make is used to establish their territory so it can be quite loud, especially when inside the siding or chimney. Do not attempt to remove them on your own. Call the professionals at Xceptional. These are protected birds and they must be removed with care.
