This Mockingbird in my yard is such a bully! I had just grabbed my camera to take a picture of a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker that came to the feeder outside my living room window. Just as I was lifting the camera to take a picture, this bird came and chased the woodpecker away! :( Usually the "bully" stays in our neighbor's yard and terrorizes the birds at their feeder, but if he (or maybe she) sees birds at our feeder he swoops in and chases them off. He seems to dislike the larger birds, maybe he just doesn't notice the smaller ones! He sure uses a lot of energy flying back and forth between yards!
***Update*** Nov. 30, 2007 - He's back, meaner than ever, and chasing all the other birds! Today he attacked a wren on the ground under the feeder and he tried to attack a Pileated Woodpecker while it was on the suet feeder!
