Now I know what you're thinking. He's reporting a Hairy Woodpecker? How mundane... But, au contraire!
Because this is my very first time seeing a Hairy Woodpecker in. my. back. yard! :-)
Thanks to a kitchen window being open, I heard her short, sharp and very loud peek call. And instantly knew, that's no Downy Woodpecker...
So I quickly grabbed my Canon D70 with 200mm lens and rushed to my backyard blind (aka the sunroom). Where I was blessed with the sight of a female Hairy Woodpecker on my Squirrel Buster feeder.
