Knocking sound from the wall..

I've occasionally been hearing a low knocking sound from a wall, near the mains circuit breaker, and couldn't figure out what it was. Thud-thud... thud-thud-thud... thud... thud-thud. Couldn't see anything outside. I rummaged around in the attic, some rodent nesting in the wall perhaps? Then today, while I was shoveling show, I noticed this guy in the utility pole. The impact of his pecking is somehow amplified by the cable causing a sound as if someone is gently knocking on wood inside the house (you can barely hear it in the video, but trust me, it gets to you after a while ). Somehow I've never heard or spotted him when I've been outside trying to find the source of the sound.

Not sure what to do about it, but somehow it's less annoying now that I know it's just the bird

Thanks, it's a bit gloomy and dark back there usually, but the garden got a nice fluffy winter blanket just in time for the holidays :-)

Yes, that was a while ago I got a great telephoto lens a few weeks ago, and as on cue, he shows up again.

Very nice for photographing animals

I guess I'm one of those guys you hear about, sending unsolicited pictures of their peckers..

They are fascinating birds.. this one is around twice the size of the spotted woodpecker in the utility pole. He swoops past outside my office window regularly, but until yesterday I never got around to taking a photo before he was gone.
