Three different kinds of woodpecker in my back yard today. Yellow-bellied sapsucker (male, then female), hairy woodpecker (male), then downy woodpecker (female).

You can tell the hairy and downy woodpecker apart because the hairy woodpecker has a longer beak, and the downy woopecker has black bands on her white inner tail feathers.

@eric I think they must be more common up in CT. Never seen a pair like this before, but I've gotten photos of them twice before (and this is my first month with a camera that can take decent bird photos).
