Male Hairy Woodpecker
Female Downy Woodpecker
It’s easy to see the difference when watching them. The Hairy is about 9″ long with a long beak. The Downy is 6″ long with a short beak.
This squirrel was trying to keep another squirrel from the feeder.
This one eventually settled for the other feeder.
They sometimes irritate me when eating the bird seed, but this seed had been there for a few days and was wet from the rain, so I just enjoyed watching them gobble it up. 🙂
