Male Nuttall's Woodpecker ~ This male Nuttall's had been in the nest, presumably feeding his young.  He kept peeking out, waiting for the female to return to the nest, seemingly defending and protecting the nest.  The female made all the noise and commotion when an Acorn Woodpecker came boldy nosing around the nest site.
