Woodpecker Tree Decoration
poor product design
the head & tail had a slotted opening that attached by a screw, the wings had a jagged edged attachment more commonly found on picture frames. It did not look like it would be secure enough for an out door setting. If the wings had the same slotted opening as the head & tail I would have been content with purchase.

Cutest Woodpecker Ever
This is the cutest woodpecker, looks just like the one from the cartoons. I havn't put him on the tree yet, but don't think those spikes are going to do the job. I think my husband is going to drill holes in the tree first. But all in all, it will be adorable when it's up.

Cute, hesitated to order as a previous review questioned the strength of the prongs that go in the tree... i agree that I had to drill holes, but the prongs are strong, not flimzy but they can not be pounded in thr tree, they need a little help from a drill...

This will look real funny on the tree that borders my driveway.

I was surprised to find this tree decoration was supposed to be placed on the tree with each of the four pieces' built-in spikes rather than afixed loops or holes like most tree faces. Each piece had two spikes, but none were parallel with each other being bent at some angle from the factory. We ended up trying to bend them straight and parallel with the other. Placing them on the tree, we had to use a drill to make the holes because we couldn't hit the pieces like a nail. Only one piece gave us a hard time in that being a tight fit the spike came out of the piece. That time we redrilled and wiggled it back on. Still overall one should enjoy looking at this woodpecker for years to come from a distance because if you look close, one might still see the gap between the pieces & tree seeing the spikes.

I like this, but I don't. I am pleased with the whimsy of the product, but more info or instruction needs to accompany it. I suggest pre-drilled holes in the tree before it is attached. I was relieved after reading other reviews that my decoration arrived unbroken; however, upon attaching it to the tree, its head broke and I had to glue it. I would only recommend this product to a friend with the extra instructions to be wary of possible breakage. However, the overall impact once it is in place, is entertaining. We did not place it in a very obvious location. We set it back a little ways from our driveway. This requires a double-take from family and friends.

I purchased this for my husband. He normally dosen't look in the catalog but he was taken with this. It arrived broken, but after talking with the nicest customer representative, I was immediately sent a replacement. The only suggestion I have is that since it can be easily broken that they should make it out of something more durable.

I bought the Woodpecker to decorate one of our miss cut trees. The first one came with a broken tail. I called and it way replaced immediately. Great conversation piece and the birds aren't sure what it is. Really has become the talk of the neighborhood.
