Does anyone understand what is going on between these male Hairy Woodpeckers. I get the impression that they found themselves too close together and used non-threatening behaviour to try to de-escalate the situation. When one does something the other one seems to copy rather than try something new. Finally the one on the right asserts dominance with energetic head bobbing and screeching. No one gets hurt. Or I could be way off.
