“Birds know themselves not to be at the center of anything, but at the margins of everything. The end of the map. We only live where someone’s horizon sweeps someone else’s. We are only noticed on the edge of things; but on the edge of things, we notice much.”
― Gregory Maguire
At first, I thought this was a Downy Woodpecker, the most common species around here, but when I checked my bird books it looks more like this is a Hairy Woodpecker. They appear very similar, except the Hairy Woodpecker has a longer beak. I’d appreciate a verification from my bird watching connections, since I use this blog as a learning tool as well.
