Mama Robin Ain't Scared of No Red-Heads!

 An interesting encounter at Old Reid Park (Clark County) this morning. I was thrilled to see a Red-Headed Woodpecker at Old Reid. This is the first one I've seen there in all of my time spent there! As I watched, the Red-Head made his way down the tree line. He apparently came a bit too close to an American Robin nest, and Mama Robin wasn't too pleased. She came at him, claws out. Although this took place at a fairly long distance from my vehicle and shots were at high iso with the gray skies, I was pleased to get a few images of the interaction.
