Hairy Woodpecker

I so rarely see Hairy Woodpeckers that I’m immediately taken by the sheer size of this bird. Big! Well, bigger than a downy. I’m also taken by the sheer sound of this bird. Loud! Well, louder than a downy. And that beak? You guessed it, longer than a downy. Today I was taken by those amazing “eyelashes” though, I’ve never noticed them before.
