Woody Woodpecker?

I couldn't believe it! We had a new visitor to our feeder and I actually had the camera in my hand! Of course, when I saw the bird I instantly thought, "Where is that camera?" Kind of like looking for sunglasses that are perched on top of your head. Anyway, what we have here is a Hairy Woodpecker. There is another woodpecker called the Downy Woodpecker, but the Downy has spots on its tail and this one does not. You don't see that in this picture, but I have some lesser pictures that I'm not posting that clearly showed the solid black tail.
