The Tom Selleck of woodpeckers, the hairy woodpecker sports a brown tufted “moustache” above its beak. While primarily a forest bird, hairy has since learned that feeders are a wonderful source of good eats and can be found in areas much closer to humans, such as wooded parks and backyards.
Like most in the woodpecker family, fruits and nuts are the order of the day. The “hairy” is also quite fond of sunflower seeds.
