There are 2 Red bellied woodpeckers & 1 Flicker which are regulars at my
Today, the Flicker attacked both Red bellies at the hanging sunflower chip
feeder.  The flicker actually pecked at the red belly, pulled at its wings,
they both tumbled to the ground.
The Flicker wouldn't let go of the Red belly's wing, but it finally escaped
and flew off.  Then the flicker went after the second Red belly which was
on the tree trunk, and that Red belly flew off.  now the Flicker is
casually feeding on the tree trunk and taking sunflower chips from the
hanging feeder.
