Big Year: the mystery woodpecker

Okay, not really that much of a mystery. But downy and hairy woodpeckers are almost identical despite being unrelated. Mostly you have to base it on size (hairies are bigger) and bill shape (same). Fortunately, it hung around the back yard enough, visiting our suet feeders, for us to confirm it's a hairy woodpecker.

Master list for 2012 is here.
