[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, a new photo taken today.

1/2500s f/6.3 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


The larger of two look alikes, the Hairy Woodpecker
is a small but powerful bird that forages along trunks
and main branches of large trees. It wields a much longer
bill than the Downy Woodpecker's almost thornlike bill.

Hairy Woodpeckers have a somewhat soldierly look,
with their erect, straight-backed posture on tree trunks
and their cleanly striped heads. Look for them at backyard
suet or sunflower feeders, and listen for them whinnying
from woodlots, parks, and forests.

Hello Asbed
Wow, nice action shot! I love the angle which shows off the underside of the Woodpeckers plumage, it's stunning. Nice detail, colour and DOF.
