I think its a Hairy (beak seems long enough) But the yellowish coloring on the head and down near the tail is interesting. I can't seem to find and info so I'm going with, it needs a good shampooing! :)

Very nice Craig. Another ID point is looking at the white tail feather edges. If you see black spots it is a Downy.

Craig, I laughed out loud when I looked at the red belly. That look-like "What in the world is he feeding us?!?" And I had a very dirty looking Downey last year-do they and Hairys nest in hollow trees? Just a thought. Those are excellent shots, buddy.

Very nice Craig. I like the way the yellow (gold?) stands out on the Hairy.

If go with the rare Yellow-headed Hairy Woodpecker, and a fine looking Red-belly, great shooting here!

Real nice Craig, sure would like a shot at the Red Bellied. As for the Hairy...I can tell you mine have the yellow right now as well.

Yep Craig I'd agree you've got a dirty Hairy there.....all she's missing is her .44Mag (and the correct gender of course) :)
Both images are very well executed and I still can't stop laughing at the expression on the lady Red-bellieds face. So many captions could fit that image!

Very nice Craig. I would love to get a Red Bellied to stop in for a visit. Haven't seen one in a long time. I agree with Steve on the caption idea. Oh and Jeff shared a nice shot too!

Excellent shots both, Craig. Love the Red Bellied, we get the odd one up here but not enough for sure.
