1
woodpecker sp.

Seen in hole in birch tree. Never fully emerged. Appeared to be a Hairy or perhaps a Downy, however, had a tinge yellow patch on crown (top of head). Initially thought to be a Chestnut-sided perhaps foraging in the hole, but, with close observation, clearly was not foraging, rather peering out then retreating inside the hole. Chestnut-sided male singing in area as were 2 Hairy Woodpeckers seen just before in same area. Gary's photos were very helpful to clarify.

One sang and posed in the woods.
