This Male Hairy Woodpecker showed up for a few days early in the Spring of 2012.  His beak is aberrantly enlarged, making him easily identifiable.  We'll be interested to see if he shows up in later seasons or years...
Beak size is not always a reliable descriminator of Hairies and Downies.  Note the lack of black spots on his secondary tail feathers;  Compare to Downey Woopecker.
