See photos: Woodpecker 1a, 1b and 2
There are a lot of Woodpeckers in the mountains near Denver where I shoot but they are not easy to photgraph so forgive the photo quality. I'm thinking that these are either hairy or downy woodpeckers but I'm confused.
Woodpecker 1 has a red nape and I'm thinking it might be a Hairy WP because I see no "black-spotted white outer tail feathers"
Woodpecker 2 (different bird) has me perplexed. What kind has a red chin spot? (I was experimenting with "Vivid Colors" setting when I shot this and the colors are not very true, but it that red chin spot reallyl shows.)
I have a few other shots if other views might help the ID let me know and I will try to upload what you need.
When I listened to the call for Downy WP the tapping sounded like a machine gun. Neither of these taps nearly that fast. Just a steady knock-knock-knock.
