Trabue House great for birdwatching

Spot Hairy Woodpecker and Downy Woodpecker in same tree at same time at historic Trabue-Russell House, KY

Barbara Armitage and I were standing outside of the Trabue house (201 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY) Wednesday morning, talking, when we heard birds in a tree beside us, we looked up and there was a Hairy Woodpecker and a Downy Woodpecker on the same tree at the same time.

These are two woodpeckers that people have trouble identifying because they look so much alike, but the Hairy is so much bigger than the Downy and when you see them so close together like we did you can really tell the difference.

The Trabue House may be a place to go and count the birds, at the Great Backyard Bird Count next year. -MELEWI - Maury - Maury E. Lewis
The Great Backyard Bird Count is February 17-20, 2011
