“Pecky” more often refers to cedar, with the holes that looked like they’ve been, well, pecked. I Googled it and the first image, of a fence, was definitive of my experience with the term.

Birdseye is unusual in pine but it happens. I fell into a truckload of the stuff from an old friend who was a lumber mogul hereabouts and had a number of guys pulling off good looking stuff from several mills. I made some instruments out of it.

Buy it and enjoy it!
