Subject: gnatcatchers harass woodpecker
Riding Meadow Park, Fox Chapel. 2 blue-gray gnatcatchers were harassing a red-bellied woodpecker for an extended period (5 minutes). They followed it from branch to branch and tree to tree until the woodpecker flew completely out of the immediate area. Are woodpeckers predators of gnatcatchers or was the woodpecker just too close to their nest?
