Thank You Daniela for Your comment! I never seen other trees in my life with such series of holes made by hyper active woodpeckers! :D

Could it be that the woodpeckers russian name is Kalashnikov ? ;-)

With Kalashnikov such tree can be clean cut, but seems to me, there (if ever!) only Makarov was used? :D

Well, I don't know well the russian forest ranger's equipment. ;-)

I do not think forest rangers accept shooting games? But who knows?

I just try imagine, sometimes woodpeckers can be loud and boring and might be this time our blind or drunk forest ranger tried play revenge games with woodpecker?
