Woodpecker Study 2

As seen in our backyard earlier this week.

 

This video shows two different types of Woodpeckers.

 

I'm not quite sure exactly what type of bird is on the tree at the beginning of this video; initially I thought it was a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, but there is no red on it which led me to believe that it was a female. However after some online research I think it is a female Hairy Wookpecker:

The second part of the video show a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (also a type of Woodpecker) and its greyish juvenile offspring on the right.

It was a hot sunny day that day and it had rained quite a bit earlier so a lot of different birds were out in full force. I shot video of the various birds for well over an hour, so there's quite a bit of video left to post. More later.
