Yellow-bellied Sapsucker


This was my first ever sighting of a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker - January 2009 - Bisset Park, Radford, Virginia 

 They really do have a Yellow Belly :)

Not what we have but what we enjoy constitutes our abundance.

It definitely looks like a yellow bellied female. Great pictures. She seems to be curious of you.

Kerri,

You have absolutely beautiful pictures. Thanks for visiting me so I could find you.

Richard said...

Good call. It's a juvenile male Yellow-bellied. Notice that the throat is just starting to change color to red.
