Hairy or Downy Woodpecker

Recommended Posts

I dont' think I'll ever be able to tell the difference.  Most in my area are Downy.  Like I am pretty sure this is

I know a Hairy Woodpecker is supposed to have a longer bill.  This one look longer but it probably just the angle or something.

Is is a Downy also?  Richmond, VA on Dec 2, 2018  Sometime, I'd like to get a picture of a Hairy identified to add to my bird species count.
