Saw that on Facebook, great shots from the photographer and the bird managed to shake off the weasel and get up to the branches of a tree....

Incredible photo......and I assume lucky woodpecker, thry csll thrm woodpeckers but when I see them here ( not often and a treat when I do) they are eating ants on the edge of the grass......keep up the good work woodpecker. ...they're the biting red ants 😞

Astonishing, and Bravo, that woodpecker. I wonder who won in the end? You wouldn't have thought a birds face could register emotion like that would you?
