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.

"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?
