The Woodpecker War - Round 2

Last fall a woodpecker decided to turn the wooden siding outside our bedroom window into his private lunch counter, and proceeded to make two large holes in the siding.  I retaliated by improvising a bird deterrent from heavy duty aluminum foil, string, and a nail.  Unfortunately, the bird deterrent banged against our bedroom window at night, preventing us from sleeping.  In addition, after about a week, the woodpecker realized that the foil wasn't actually a threat, and he went back to work enlarging the holes.  I conceded and removed the deterrent so we could get some sleep.

He's returned this year and brought a friend (mate?).  In this round of the Woodpecker War I have taped a picture of the scariest clip art owl I could find to the bedroom window.  There was no woodpecker yesterday, the first day, but how long will it last?
