Hairy Woodpecker Pecking on Tree

Hairy Woodpecker pecking on tree

This is a picture I took a few years ago of a hairy woodpecker pecking on a tree in Michigan.  They like to get the insects from under the bark.  You can see some of these pieces of bark on the snow.  They are delightful birds that will make a sharp “Peeeek!” sound if they are startled.  They are similar in markings to the Downy Woodpecker, but they are larger.
