Although this image came out blurry, it is still a good depiction of a Mourning Dove standing her ground against the woodpecker. She puffed up her feathers to make herself look big and raised her wings above her head. The Mourning Dove won and in the images above, you can see the woodpecker hiding behind the Mourning dove after losing the skirmish.
