Rated 5 out of 5 by tallslenderchic Adorable!
I saw this is my local Anthropologie over the weekend and couldn't help but purchase it. It is super cute and looks great on my door. The only slight critism I have is that it is kind of awkward that it functions opposite normal doorknockers in that the woodpecker is designed to hang upside down and you are actually pushing his tail in to generate the knocking sounds. Overall though, it is very functional and a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cadence He can hang right-side up or upside down
It really depends on your preference as to which way you hang him, but I know of several species of woodpeckers in particular that will hang upside down when foraging for food in a tree hole. My grandmother thought he was absolutely adorable and loved that I had him hanging upside down.
I really love that this is a very well made piece and stands up to the humidity and rather unpredictable Florida weather. It's heavy enough to stay put in bad storms (I've had issues with other doorknockers knocking when the wind really picks up) and I adore the attention to detail. It's been hanging on my door for the past several months and I've seen no issue with quality or wearing. Well worth the money!

I have this hanging right-side up and it looks adorable. I just had to have it for our new house and went into the store hoping to find it! Everyone comments on it, everyone wants to know where I bought it, and I've gotten lots of compliments.
It is a nice and heavy, sturdy door knocker and the sound is loud enough to be heard. Great purchase, glad I spent the money!
