Why do woodpeckers peck at things other than trees? I have one that constantly pecks at my window, and it is incredibly annoying. I thought that woodpeckers peck to find/store food, but there clearly isn't anywhere to store food in the glass of my window, so does it just love to peck things? So far it hasn't done any damage to the window, but i'm a little worried it might break through the glass one of these days. Most importantly, how do I get rid of it? Yelling/throwing things at the window scares it away temporarily, but it always comes back.
