We received a fascinating story from reader Luanne Brooker of Sandersville, Georgia about a pair of pileated woodpeckers fighting off a snake that had slithered into their nest. It’s pretty incredible, if you ask us! Here are some photos from the encounter. The entire story can be found in our September issue of Birds & Blooms Extra.
