Using the alarm on your phone/tablet

So, for the past few days, I have been randomly hearing what I thought was my alarm going off.  Which it wasn't.

Turned out that I was hearing the return of the Pileated Woodpeckers to my yard - I use the Alarm function on my iPad as my alarm clock and had set it to the "Hillside" sound.  Turns out the Hillside sound is based on the sound of woodpeckers pecking.  Time to select a new sound for my alarm!

Useful Advice:

If you don't want to go nuts thinking an alarm is going off somewhere don't set your iPad/iPhone alarm to use Hillside.  Unless of course, you don't have any woodpeckers in your yard.

Fun Fact

In addition to the woodpeckers, chipmunks have returned to my yard and this is immensely upsetting to Trevor The Dog.  You can also hear the woodpeckers in the short video below while Trevor expresses his dissatisfaction with the wildlife on our patio.
