Afternoon visitor, right at my front door a Hairy Woodpecker

The Hairy Woodpecker is  black and white, the wings have a checkered pattern and the head has two white stripes with the exceptions of the males who have a flash of red on the back of their head.
The Hairy Woodpecker  feed on the bases of trees, along fallen logs and sometimes even on the ground.

This breed of Woodpecker can be found across the continent in woodlots suburbs parks, cemeteries open woodlands etc.
