Red-bellied Woodpecker and Blue Jay

The woodpecker and blue jay both arrived at the peanut feeder at the same time. They were squawking at each other so much that they drew my attention. I was able to photograph them posturing at each other. The jay was flapping its wings, and the woodpecker’s hackles were raised! After a while, the blue jay “bowed down” to the woodpecker and left until the woodpecker was done at the feeder! This is the shot that I sent.
