Woodpecker in the snow

[ #27872 ]

Woodpecker's are different in Canada to the UK - they're smaller (this
        little fella was just the size of a sparrow), but they seem slightly
        more common. We've had suet out for the birds for a while now, and they
        love it. So do the squirrels (though I hear they're getting a taste for
        dog).

        Taken through a dirty window, Sigma 70-200 @ 200mm.

  • Kinda looks like a juvenile red-headed woodpecker, which if I recall correctly is the smallest breed. Contrast that though to the Pileated woodpecker (aka Cock-of-the-North), which is a magnificent bird a fair bit bigger than a blue jay.
