Woodpeckers

Redbellied woodpeckers are often the biggest bullies around back yard bird feeders, keeping other birds away.

I think I first noticed it around my backyard bird feeder; I’m talking about the “pecking’ order. By definition, it’s the “colloquial term for a hierarchical system of social organization.”
