Downy of Hairy Woodpecker Part II

Recommended Posts

This woodpecker was spotted today. I cannot tell if it is a downy or hairy woodpecker. Are those black bars on the outer tail feathers? Honestly, I am not sure where to look. Initially I thought the beak looked long. It was only at the feeder for a few seconds so I did not get a chance to observe much behaviour. My location is the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada.

What's with the tin can labels in the feeder?  :classic_blink:

Some birds peck all day at the wire mesh instead of taking seeds from the tray. This helps redirect them. It's cardboard from a 3-pack of Ketchup, Mustard and Relish.
