    I was just outside cleaning up the backyard, when this guy showed up at my new bird feeder. He did not flinch when I walked over, grabbed the camera, and snapped these two shots.

    hey chiller....great shots!!

    this looks like either a downy wood pecker or a hairy wood pecker....( make up your own jokes....)

    and the only difference between them is size...the hairy woodpecker is a bit larger...but its hard to tell....does that help??

    Thanks for the comments Arch, April. and melcooney. Bet as soon as our "real" bird photogs get here, they will peg this one for sure.
    Kinda cool. He has been here for an hour now. A cardinal just dropped in. How ironic at easter eh...oh wait...it is the bird version. I just cannot get a shot of him. Kane wont share the backyard.

    I see you are really getting Downy with it. Nice shot. Definitely a Downy, beak to short for a Hairy. Hairy beak is much larger, but in the Woodpecker world size is not important. It is beak strength, and of course the Flicker Woodpecker is known for something else, but I can't go there.
