Hairy Woodpecker

About the Hairy Woodpecker
Also known as: White-breasted Woodpecker, Queen Charlotte Woodpecker, Harris's Woodpecker, Cabanis's Woodpecker, Modoc Woodpecker, Sierra Woodpecker, Chihuahua Woodpecker, Newfoundland Woodpecker

The Hairy Woodpecker is a medium-sized woodpecker that lives in parts of North America and Central America. For the most part they are non-migratory, though birds in the far north of their range or at high elevations may move to other locations during the winter. Their preferred habitat is mature deciduous forest.

Hairy Woodpeckers eat insects foraged from tree trunks. They also eat plant matter including fruits, nuts, and even tree sap.

The Hairy Woodpecker is very similar in appearance to the Downy Woodpecker, though the two species are not very closely related.
