The Hairy Woodpecker is a common resident of Newfoundland found throughout the province and is shyer than its small relative, the Downy woodpecker, but more active and noisier. The Hairy woodpecker prefers heavier woods with a few deciduous trees but during winter this expert climber wanders around in search of food, coming to feeders in communities.
