December activity on the Green trail

It was an active day on the Green trail today.  On my way to check on a downed tree, I happened upon a flock of robins in a little grove of holly trees making much hustle and bustle.  Then, a little further on I could hear a woodpecker hard at work on a tree nearby.  I searched out this one.  I am never completely sure of whether I have found a downy or a hairy woodpecker so I welcome those birders who can be definitive.  I saw no markings on the white strip of the tail feathers so think it is a hairy.  She was making her way around the tree, stopped at the hole and then popped halfway in.
