Hairy Woodpecker

This elegant gentleman has been coming to our bird feeders recently. I believe his name is Leuconotopicus villosus (Hairy Woodpecker). He comes especially for the suet we put out but is shyer than his wife who also comes (his wife doesn't have the red on the back of her head). In fact, she started coming weeks before he showed up but now he comes regularly.

Well captured Ron.

Woodpeckers are funny that way, here the Male (Great Spotted Woodpecker) comes just after sun up,the female later but never together except when they havefledglings with them in spring.
