New Auburn, WI. (NW Wisconsin)

I just saw a black colored bird with a fuzzy looking head, White under his neck and his chest. Also white trim on the end of this tail. About 8 to 10 inches long. He flew into the patio door several times but didn't stay long enough to get a picture.

Might be a Downy Woodpecker. Without a photo it is hard to tell.
