Little Owl and Woodpecker
The Little Owl and the Woodpecker fought for territory and food and it looked like there was no chance of these two becoming feathered friends. First there was a warning from the Little Owl. The Woodpeckers chest puffed out, but the bird did not want to leave. As a result, the Little Owl holds the Woodpeckers claws together. The two lashed out at each other with their talons as they got defensive over territory.
