I have 15 hives at my home apiary, 14 Nationals and 1 WBC in my garden as a “feature”. Last winter the WBC was the only hive to be attacked by a Woodpecker. Looks like the same bird came back this year, the white patch is the last year’s repair, the first new hole I filled with a stick so it made another! The questions are why WBC and why just one hive out of 15? None of the hives have woodpecker protection and the Nationals must be a more fruitful target.
