Hairy Woodpecker

Hairy Woodpecker at Eastern Neck Island Refuge.

The Hairy Woodpecker (Picoides villosus) is one of several medium sized woodpeckers found in the state of Maryland.

Its look is extremely similar, practically identical to that of the Downy Woodpecker, however, the Downy tends to be a few inches smaller. The Hairy Woodpecker is fairly common in the state and I have seen and photographed one more than once at Eastern Neck Island Refuge.
