Woodpecker vs Squirrel: The fight for nest

Wildlife photographer Howard Reid captured an amazing moment when a woodpecker fighting with a squirrel  to claim back her nest. Read more inside.

  The woodpecker was surprised to see a squirrl in her nest. She decided to reclaim it and decided to lie in wait on the far side of the tree. The squirrel thought that the real owner went away and poked his head out of the nest. The woodpecker attacked and both fought for minutes. Later the woodpecker realised that it is futile to reclaim back her territory and flew away.  According to Howard Reid the woodpecker came back several days to reclaim her nest but gave up hope and never came back again.
