|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This Hairy woodpecker was nursing her foot. She had a hard time standing on it. This is probably one of the better shots I got of her. She seemed frustrated while going after food.|
The Hairy Woodpecker has more than 17 recognized subspecies.
They are the most prolific woodpeckers in North America.
The males incubate the eggs during the night while the females incubate them during the day.
A group of woodpeckers has many collective nouns, including a "descent", "drumming", and "gatling" of woodpeckers.
