I have seen this camera shy fellow all summer but wanted to be sure before I counted him. Please confirm Hairy Woodpecker Posted Image. I am pretty confident this time because this is who chased him off the feeder making it easy to compare size Posted Image and is this wet little bird a juvenile chipping sparrow? Posted Image Thanks

Hairy confirmed! Congrats!
I also agree with Chipping Sparrow based on the bill.

Just now I watched an adult chipping sparrow feed it so that helps confirm it! Thanks for confirming the Hairy. I was pretty sure I'd seen him but it was really nice of the Downy to chase him away for such an easy comparison!

I'll also confirm both, though I needn't. (It's just that I know both of these and that doesn't happen often!)
