|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This guy stayed behind branches while scaling this tree. I was lucky to get a shot at all. Most other times they are easy to take pictures of. They don't scare when you are standing right next to the tree. I see them using their sense of smell sometimes. I don't know why they go on smelling in a trance for several minutes.|
The Hairy Woodpecker has more than 17 recognized subspecies.
They are the most prolific woodpeckers in North America.
The males incubate the eggs during the night while the females incubate them during the day.
A group of woodpeckers has many collective nouns, including a "descent", "drumming", and "gatling" of woodpeckers.

Hello Trevor-Beautiful Woodpecker you have captured.I like its colour and sharpness.Well framed.Thanks for sharing.Regards and have a nice Sunday tomorrow-Srikumar
Despite the branches you managed to get your subject "into focus".
They take turns to hatch the eggs just as the domestic pigeons do. And, they are FAITHFUL FOR LIFE.
This image has all the colours quite well balanced too.
GREAT PIECE OF WORK ...
Best and most kind regards from Calgary, Alberta,

A great shot of this attractive hairy Woodpecker. From this angle there is no doubt that it is a Hairy and not a Downey, as the long beak is easily visible. Wonderful exposure in what appears to be a bright sunny day. Super sharp focus resulting in excellent detail while white balance is right on, as colors are true and natural. Well done!!
