The green woodpecker continued its drilling today, while working its way towards the top of the building.
While Googling ‘green woodpeckers’ in an effort to discover whether it was a young bird I came across this:
Common Woodpecker Spirit Animal Meanings
When the woodpecker spirit animal comes knocking, it seeks to rekindle your passion in finding the truth.
The woodpecker symbolism also encourages you to be innovative and creative and to protect those who are too weak to protect themselves.
The woodpecker spirit animal appears to you because you need to protect your wisdom and creativity from threats.
Do not be too open about your pursuits because there are many threats out there that will take them away from you.
People will always want to take advantage of your kindness and generosity. The woodpecker meaning encourages you to strike a balance between being kind and being cautious.
Well that was fascinating, I shall take note.
This particular green woodpecker does not have the distinctive markings I am familiar with and it also seems to have an abundance of down feathers, which made me wonder if it was a young bird and maybe a little confused about where it should be drilling. However I still feel the most likely reason for drilling on a building is to attract a mate.
Anyway I have seen it flying around for several months so I am sure there will be more photos to come.
Stay safe, take care.
