This Red-bellied Woodpecker and Northern Mockingbird couldn't come to terms in sharing the suet.  The woodpecker won.

I always like the dynamic scenes of nature. Nature is brutal actually.

Before I took up photography, I used to have the notion that all was soooo peaceful and serene in the bird world.  HAH!  I think they're more violent than humans (if THAT'S possible!).

Thanks very much, everyone.  I wish I could get more like this, but I'm not always ready for it.

I love it when a picture tells a story!

You don't want to get into an argument with a woodpecker. They have thick skulls and sharp beaks.

The Northern Mockingbird is not one to be trifled with, Mark.  But, it knows when it's been bettered!
