Fox Island Co. Park - trail "E"
The Vernal Equinox has past, the Red Winged Blackbirds have arrived and the Skunk Cabbage is up at Fox Island and Metea County Parks. Forget the weather forecast and forget what's going outside - spring is here!!

It's not always easy to describe the subtle differences between Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers. The larger size and longer bill of the bird on the left shows it's a Hairy Woodpecker. The Hairy's bill is roughly the same length as it's head. The Downy Woodpecker's bill is much shorter in relation to it's head. The red patch on the Hairy shows it is a male and the absence of the patch on the Downy shows it is a female.
