Mysterious Canopy Cover Hole

So I saw this in my brand new canopy cover (merely a few weeks in use) and genuinely wonder what has caused it?





Any ideas?

Bird. You can see the foot/claw prints.

Well than „thank you“, f****n‘ bird!

Some bird likes your bird, no wonder you are pissed of ;-)

Bird, yes! That matches Snoopy!

I wonder why a bird would pick a hole in the cover? Our aircraft lived outside for decades with just a cover and I never saw anything like this.

Any mark on paint or metal behind the hole? A fledgeling woodpecker? Too late for an adult looking to make a noise to attract a mate??

The hole is clearly made outside in. Perhaps some predatory bird thought the upper door lock underneath the canopy is a mouse?

Many planes here covered for years and years, never saw anything like this.
