Sunday during the snow storm I noticed this Hairy Woodpecker on the side of a tree in our back yard, quite as a church mouse. I watched for several minutes and he didn't move a feather. Hmm must be playing possum I thought to myself. Shortly after our resident Coopers Hawk swooped down from the treetops and chased a Mourning Dove off into the woods. The Hairy Woodpecker continued his "I'm just a part of this tree" routine for a few minutes more and then flew down to the suet feeder for a bite to eat.
