This pileated woodpecker decided to check out a stump that just happened to be the residential property of a family of tree swallows.

Just wish I had a shot with the swallows in focus.
The pileated then moved to another tree and gave me these.

Tree swallows are very protective of their nesting site and usually vigorously defend it! I am sure that woodpecker was practically on top of their nest.
