About the Badaba Bird (acorn woodpecker)


After some years of investigating and discussion, the source of the famous
'Badaba!' bird call that became the tribal mantra at our hippie ranch has
been nailed down. Some said "piliated woodpecker," but the call was not the
same. Recently I listened to the "acorn woodpecker" and yes, indeed, that's it!
"Badaba! Badaba!"
