Local Woodpecker variety

We're fortunate to live in a place where you can see seven kinds of woodpeckers in the winter months. Walking around at Lake Leatherwood, there are Red-bellied WP, Downy WP, Hairy WP ( a large version of the Downy, with a much larger bill, but much less common), Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers (with their large white wing patch), Northern Flickers, and the large noisy Pileated WP. In town there are several areas where Red-headed WP are seen regularly.

An online guide to bird identification is avaiable from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology
