The Gila Woodpecker
The territorial, noisy rubythroated hummingbirds could never top the Gila Woodpecker. She is beautiful, but louder than a rooster. Our dog thinks she must rush and bark at her. I have a Gila woodpecker ringtone from Rare Earthtones. It reminds me of my annoying, feathered friend. You should get one, too.
Apparently others feel similarly. "Real" citation from Wikipedia on the Gila Woodpecker: "the desert woodpecker is the dumbest woodpecker in the desert"
