A curious woodpecker alerted a family’s video doorbell by landing on it.

Homeowner Jason Price was given a bit of a shock when his Ring doorbell told him there was a visitor at his home in Canada on October 10.

Checking out the live video, he was greeted with the up-close face of a woodpecker pecking away at the lens with its beak.

Its visit was a brief one as the bird flew off within a few seconds but can be seen flying around one of the house’s hedges.

Jason said: “This cute little woodpecker decided to say hello that day.

“I haven’t seen it since.”
