Some kind of small hawk or falcon seems to have gotten its head stuck in a hole in a tree in my yard. Anyone know how to help?
Disaster averted! I got him out. He's a woodpecker.
First, I put on thick gloves and tried to ease him down to where the crack is wider, but he just freaked out. I was scared he'd hurt himself. Then I got a hammer and small chisel and carefully widened the hole just below where he was stuck. It worked!
He looks a little freaked out. He's still flying around the yard, from one branch to another.
Do woodpeckers have sharp talons?
