Yellow-bellied Sapsucker - Eyeing Me


There are many things in life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart. 
Pursue those.

He is giving you the eye isn't he ~ perhaps worried that you will nip his berries! ;)

I haven't seen one of these in quite some time. I'm hoping one might show itself this winter. That is if we ever have a winter.

How beautiful. I don't think I've ever seen a bird like this before. He does look like he's giving you the eye.

Sapsucker: "Hey you. I know you're going to tell me my head and neck feathers are the same colour as these delicious cherries, but I'm not stupid. I know I can see my reflection in water. I have. And so I know I'm gorgeous, so don't bother telling me. Thanks."

Beautiful! I'm glad you posted this! I think I saw a young one that I am posting tomorrow, so I'm glad to see a good photo. Mine isn't anywhere near as colorful,but don't know what else it could be. Just looks like a dirty colored more mottled looking downy, sort of.
