Quarrelling Hairy Woodpeckers

I had a lot of fun photographing this woodpecker spat in January. Two male hairy woodpeckers were debating who was going to go to a suet feeder. There are five suet feeders on the bird tree, so they kept themselves quite busy. They would fly at each other but neither was actually touched by the other. They kept this up for so long that I stopped watching them after thirty minutes. There were so many good shots, that I decided to give you a slide show.
