Destroyed by a Rogue Woodpecker

I really can’t stand birds. I’ve always disliked birds ever since I was a kid.

A Bird in the Attic

I had an unexpected bird problem last week. A bird somehow made its way into my attic and started making a nest there. To handle the issue, I called a company that specializes in bird control and removal services.
