I was thrilled to have the Hairy Woodpecker and the Downy Woodpecker come to the suet feeder at the same time to be able to see and share the real size difference between the two. Many get the two mixed up or not sure if they have the larger Hairy or a Downy. I don’t think I’ll make the mistake again.

Yes, there is a size difference.
