You Sapsucker

Sapsucker1I imagine that if you walked up to a stranger and called him a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker you might get punched in the face; it reminds me of an insult you’d hear in an old western movie. I went to the bog this morning and almost immediately came across a tree filled with Sapsuckers. They migrate through these parts across a narrow band from Nebraska to Ohio so we only see them for a couple weeks a year; it’s an exciting catch for me. I took a few other cool shots while I was there, I’ll post them tomorrow. And no photoshop trickery was used in these pictures!
