Greater Spotted Woodpecker

I was out recently trying to get some more photo’s of the Cuckoos in the area , but with no luck this time. But while hidden i had a close encounter with Woodpeckers, they were feeding on some snapped off pines – victims of bad weather we had a few years back and now they’re well rotted with various beetle larva and other insects in them. At one point the two males were fighting no more than ten feet from me going at it for all they were worth ! Feathers going all over the place , mostly from the back of the neck.
