Hairy Woodpecker

There are four types of woodpeckers that frequent our yard: Downy, Hairy, Red-bellied, and Red-headed. The first three make an appearance numerous times a day. Red-headed woodpeckers are infrequent visitors and quite hard to photograph. What follows are several photos I took of a Hairy Woodpecker. Or is it it a Downy Woodpecker? The only difference between the two is overall body size and bill size. I am going with Hairy today.
