Isn't that a good-looking bird?
The hairy's smaller cousins, Downy Woodpeckers, have been all over the place.
A few Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers are overwintering, which I don't think I've seen in Central Park before. I'm told they're fairly common at this latitude in winter, however.

The ones I've seen on my morning walks like to hang motionless off trees. i think they're waiting for sun to warm up the sap.
There are quite a number of Red-Bellied Woodpeckers around. This one likes to stash food in the posts of Laupot Bridge.
The White-Breasted Nuthatch isn't a woodpecker, but they also stash food in odd places. They're a little more secretive about it, though.
