It is such a treat to take a hike in one of the parks here on Cape Cod and hear the drilling of the Hairy Woodpecker on the trees. This Hairy was very busy at work.
I was lucky to get close enough to get a decent photograph of him.
Hairy Woodpeckers are bigger than the Downy Woodpecker with a much larger bill and clear, white unspotted outer tail feathers.
Have you ever seen a Hairy Woodpecker? Beautiful, don’t you think?
