Birds of Kentucky: Male Downy Woodpecker

2011-02-05 - Columbia, KY - Photo by George Kolbenschlag.
This is the boyfriend of the female Downey Woodpecker photographed by Peggy Spoon.He looks a lot like a Hairy Woodpecker, but is smaller and has a shorter bill. His bill is about half the depth of his head while the Hairy's bill is almost as long as it's head is deep. Unlike the Downey, the Hairy usually has no white bar on it's outer tail feathers. The Downey is quite common in Southeastern Kentucky. The Hairy is also common, but not as common as the Downey - at least in my back yard. -George Kolbenschlag For more about Downey Woodpeckers, click to All About Birds: Downy Woodpecker.
