You've likely seen (maybe even posted) this amazing old YouTube video of a Crimson-crested doing battle with a green snake:

Hi CT. Yes, and I think it's one of the most amazing bird videos out there! I have not posted it here because it's been reposted so often on YoiuTube that I quickly lost track of the original owner of that video.

If you, or anyone else, could point me toward the legit owner, I'd sure love to post that Crimson-crested Woodpecker vs. snake video here.
