I'm sure there are lots of lists and websites set up just for that Byard, just use a search engine and put in "biggest pecker", and if you don't end up at a bird watching site, probably you'll fond what you are looking for. (We have piliated woodpeckers in our backyard, and they are huge, and sound like Woody-woodpecker when they call, too)... And since we are discussing "birds"... as for testosterone soaked peacocks, I'm sorry to say, we also have about two dozen of them in our backyard also, and I'd love to soak them in something, like maybe gasoline! One of our neighbors, who thinks they are running a petting zoo (personally, I think it is more like a passport to some barnyard (as opposed to byard ;-)) disease, but that's just my opinion) decided to get some peacocks (and peahens) a few years back. Well, our winters are pretty mild (in fact, the damn peacocks don't seem to mind it when it snows, anyway)... well, as peacocks and peahens tend to do... they bred, and before we knew it, we had literally about two dozen of the buggers roosting on our roof, fouling the sidewalks and patio, waking us up at 4 AM with their strangled cat (male) and football game trumpet (female) sounding calls, and knocking over fences and flowerpots, and eating our flower and veggie gardens to the ground. Of course, they also eat all the birdseed we put out for the wild birds. Well, it's "chick" season again, and all animal control offered me when I finally complained is a permit to shoot the buggers which I won't do (yet!). He lived in another neighborhood that had/has them and he referred to them as "the biggest pains in the a** in the bird kingdom". Our other neighbors are no happier about this. At least if the people who first brought them here offered us a few bags of tail feathers every year (the peacocks molt them), but no, we get all the grief and no advantage... in fact, because we are on a nice forested land here, and our neighbors with the "petting zoo" live on what is basically a mud flat, guess where the peacocks prefer to hang out? But for some reason then rarely leave a feather behind, just a load of cra*. Well, that's all the "bird" stories I have today. By the way, I've made some really interesting scans with peacock feathers (true story), and some peacock images do sell well....
