Observation Location: Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary
Common Name: Hairy Woodpecker
Scientific Name: Picoides villosus
Comments: Hairy woodpeckers look like downy woodpeckers, but they are larger. This one worked for hours to hollow out a hole for nesting high up in a dead tree. Woodpecker species can be differentiated by the drumming sound they make, as well as their calls.
