All nice shots. Haven't seen any Wrens in my area yet. Maybe I haven't been looking hard enough. How do you tell the difference between a Hairy Woodpecker and a Downy Woodpecker? They both look exactly the same in your pictures. Were they labeled wrong? I see these all the time and thought they were all Downy Woodpeckers.

Nice shots John. Rick, the Hairy's are twice as big and the beak is longer than a downys is, in relation to the head. A Downy beak is 1/4 as long as it's head, and a Hairy's is 1/2 as long. But size is the giveaway.

Thanks for the positive response... The Red Bellied Woodpecker was a pretty dark shot cause it was cloudy and snowing at the time... I recovered the colors from RAW and post processing brightened it up.

My neighbor has a few bird houses near me... and one is being occupied by the Wren's. Cannonloader describes the difference best... The Hairy is considerably larger.

Thanks Mitch for covering for me... These winter shots are tough to get cause the birds keep in the shadows and it's quite dark, especially when cloudy.

It was 6 degrees this morning here... I keep the feeder full at all times... including a couple of suet cakes for them.

Thanks for the positive feedback... I've got some close ups, that I will call portraits, to post next.
