You Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker!

Imagine that, I always thought it was someone who was a low-down, dirty, cheating no good for nothing piece of trash person. A Yellow-Bellied Sap Sucker is actually a member of the woodpecker family that literally drinks the sap from trees. Aptly named I guess.

I had my first chance to photograph one last week as this male hung high in the top of my birch tree surveying the property and looking for a morsel or two amongst the new buds.

Red beard, red cap, yellow belly.

He's not as handsome as I am!

I heard that, I'm not deaf you know!
