Hairy Woodpeckers also make a rattle or whinny. This call is also similar to the Downy Woodpecker but does not descend in pitch at the end. Click 'More...' to listen to Hairy Woodpecker sounds.

E3 Makes Debut Appearance at Cornell Lab Migration Celebration 2014

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology 2014 Migration Celebration saw E3's debut appearance as an education bird and an ambassador for Red-tailed Hawks. He did an amazing job, with help from his awesome student handler. He remained calm and still while fans around him took photographs and filmed him. Birders on the Ground (BOG) Karel and BOGette live streamed throughout the day, as well as BOG Ferris. The Cornell Lab continue to be extremely grateful to all those involved in E3's rescue, care and support.
