A hairy woodpecker pauses briefly on the East Trail in the Rolland F. Perry City Forest in Bangor recently.
Moment of Silence
The hairy woodpecker, taken on the East Trail in the Bangor city forest. I'm always amazed at the approachability of busy woodpeckers. The constant movement and jack-hammering of their heads make for a difficult photo, but the occupied bird is so distracted that a careful observer can get fairly close. It's always fun to try!
