I was wondering why this Billbergia was starting to look beat up (other than just the weather...) and then yesterday I saw a woodpecker hop up the tree and poke at it a couple of times.  Now I know why there are holes in the plant!  I wasn't fast enough to grab the camera and catch it in the act, but this is as good as I could do...notice the two holes?

Youch!  So much for holding a bit of water.

Well, if there is a silver lining...at least the damage was from a bird and not some monster bug (whether it is a monster due to its size or its damage).

Nothing a little duct tape couldn't fix.
