Hello all, I wasn’t sure were to post this particular subject.
While walking thru our garden (early last month) I noticed a huge pile of shavings at the base of a Tiki pole.
When I looked up there was a golf ball sized hole, obviously not the work of an insect.

He had quite a personality and would come out and watch me while I was watering my plants. Although we have many varieties of woodpeckers around here, these were not one I was familiar with. As soon as junior flew we never saw them again.
My very best Alohas

great story and pic, i knew tiki stuff was getting popular the last few years but never would have imagined how far it spread, even the birds are digging (or pecking) tiki.

An extra set of eyes that you did not plan for. This post could even be posted in the "Living Tiki" post that is going on right now.

If you told someone on the street about a living tiki they would never believe. There are living plant tiki and now tiki with living animal brains inside. Sounds gross but cool.
