A Favorite of Mine

Not the greatest shot....but isn't he pretty??
When this was taken it was only the third time I had ever seen a Yellow Bellied Sapsucker.
Taken on the tree in my backyard.
 I can get sooooo Excited over seeing a new bird - or any bird for that matter :)

I love that bird! I've captured them myself several times but they've all been immatures so the head isn't red, it's a rust color.

Very cool!

Good capture Kerri!

I only have one image of a YB sapsucker and it was an immature.

Great collage on your previous post, you are really doing some spectacular birs work.

A good shot Kerri. I've only ever seen one, and did get a picture but it was far away.
