PostSubject: Black Snake And a Mother's Fight    Sun May 11, 2014 1:35 pm

Caught this early Sunday morning (Mother's Day) in my yard. Woodpeckers nest in Sahuaro cactuses here. Unfortunately, after a woodpecker had layed her eggs, a black snake, I think it was a King Snake, invaded the nest, some ten feet up in the air. What followed was a 30 minute battle to try and get the snake out.



The snake exiting the nest after eating the eggs............



"Albert, do you REALLY think you are old enough to know what love is?"
"I must be Pa. I love you, I have for a long time."

Interesting!  Were you tempted to intervene on the woodpecker's behalf?
