Fantastic footage of a Peruvian crested woodpecker attacked by a large green tree snake at a nestsite(?) --- don't know which is more amazing, the snake's speed or the woodpecker's persistence (snake attack begins around the 37-second mark, so you can be ready):

Flippin' unbelievable. What looked like a crimson-crested woodpecker innocently excavating turned out to be a desperate bird trying to defend its eggs or young. Just an incredible bit of footage.
