Hairy woodpecker

I am always happy when I get a new visitor to my feeders. This is the first time I have had a hairy woodpecker come. She looks almost like a downy woodpecker(I posted a picture a few days ago), but she is larger. A downy is about 6.5 inches long and a hairy woodpecker is about 9inches. You can see how big she is in the second picture beside the dove. Also her bill is larger.
