Downy Woodpecker Tangles

We're almost at the end of current photos of Downy Woodpeckers!  This was an interesting interaction between two males a few weeks ago; they briefly tangled a few times as they both made their way up a couple of trees in a park.  It was very gentleman-y - almost like a South Park wussy-slap.  Seemed to be pretty evenly matched, too - neither emerged as the heir apparent to whatever cavity must be the coveted one in the area.
