I listened to this woodpecker drilling for a long time before I finally spotted him in the top of a dead tree. The length of the bill made me decide it was the Downy instead of the Hairy -- somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
The woodpeckers, piculets, wrynecks, and sapsuckers are a family, Picidae, of near-passerine birds. Members of this family are found worldwide, except for Australia, New Guinea, New Zealand, Madagascar, and the extreme polar regions. Most species live in forests or woodland habitats, although a few species are known to live in treeless areas, such as rocky hillsides and deserts.
