There are no woodpeckers in Australia. I first encountered a woodpecker in Switzerland trying to nest in a hollow sounding light pole! It pecked that pole for weeks with no luck.
I cut and molded a steel spade head to resemble folded wings. On top I welded the valve rocker for the head. Eyes are washerd and the crest is part of a circular saw blade. The beak is cut from square tubing and the feet and legs are steel rod. He is poised ready to nest!!
