The Downy Woodpecker is our smallest woodpecker and is common and widespread in Nova Scotia. Its a reliable feeder bird and stays all winter. Its bill is about one half the length of its head whereas its larger lookalike the Hairy Woodpecker has a bill almost as long as its head. This is a handy tip to identify these woodpeckers at a distance.
