The weather was really crappy on this day--there was snow and it was cold and wet.This did not deter the birds from getting their nourishment--we are seeing more goldfinches and woodpeckers at the feeders here than in previous years. This looks like a male downy woodpecker. (It had the patch of red on the back you just can't see it here). I think all the ones we are seeing these days are downys and not hairys. The hairy woodpecker has a longer beak and is slightly bigger overall--you can see both of them here.
