Jordan Lake Neighborhood: Woodpecker and Flicker, 8 photos 5/23/2019

Jordan Lake Neighborhood
The red-headed woodpecker often drills more than one nest cavity before deciding which one to use.
The northern yellow-shafted flicker can chisel out its own cavity but is not adverse to stealing a site.
The red-headed woodpecker had made 3 holes on one side of the tree and 1 hole on the opposite side.
The flicker didn’t care which one she got, she was just determined to take a cavity for herself.
I don’t know who won the dispute, yet.
