The tallest flagpole toppled by Birds

The tallest flagpole to be toppled by birds is a massive wooden structurre that  originally stood in kew Gardens in London, england. when it was first constructed in 1959, the mole measured 69 metres tall, which made it the world's tallest flagpole at the time. Since then it has been shortened a number of times to make it safe. Then, in august 2007, the pole was taken down because it had become too dangerous to raise a flag. woodpeckars had damaged it making the pole unsafe.

Today, the tallest flagpoles dont have this problem. They are made of metal, which would give a curious woodpeckar a heck of a headache.
