Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers - side-by-side at a feeder - easy enough to tell apart. But see one alone, high in a tree, with nothing near to compare its size - now that can be another matter. Learn what unique plumage characteristics and behaviors can help you distinguish the two in the Winter 2008-09 issue of New Hampshire Bird Records: ("Quiz Photo" on page 3 with Answer on page 61).
Other articles in this issue include: Winter Birding in Berlin and Points North; Winter Raptor Surveys in New Hampshire; Photo Gallery-A Snowy Owl Winter; and field notes from the 2008-09 winter season. Enjoy them all!
New Hampshire Bird Records is providing free access to its archives during the Covid-19 outbreak to help birders find information on birding locally and to remind us of the joy of birding.
