Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

Is that really the world-class wilderness explorer!?! I don’t believe my eye! That’s probably not how this sighting went down, more like Who’s the chowderhead giggling down there? Absence makes the heart grow fonder, I guess, because I love me some Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, but they only spend a few weeks a year here as they pass through town. Or maybe I just really like the name sapsucker, it’s gotta be one of my top five favorite bird names.
