Hairy Female

Hairy Woodpeckers are similar to their smaller relatives the Downy Woodpecker.   Both are regular visitors to our feeders.

I'm hoping that a Pileated Woodpecker will show-up some day.  I have yet to see one.

She's too pretty to have an unflattering adjective like "hairy" attached to her.
