Woodpeckers in the Evening

Downies and Red Bellied Woodpeckers are regulars at the suet feeders in the Fall and Winter. What caught my eye today was a rare visitor..a Yellow Bellied Sapsucker. This is only the second time I've seen one at my feeders and the first time I've gotten pictures.

I blend in beautifully
Then my more familiar
                                                              friends posed too..

Who me?

Meet my mate
And finally look who flew in, as the sun was setting..

For man, as for flower and beast and bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive ~DH Lawrence


  1. Those are some great visitors. Love those Red Bellied Woodpeckers. Must have been exciting to spot the Yellow Bellied Sapsucker. Way to go, getting some good photos too!

  2. What a lovely plumage! Woodpeckers are such amazing creations :) Great captures and a lovely quote too. Have a nice day.

  3. Oh I LOVE These Cindy! The YB Sapsucker is one of my fave birds (but aren't they all)
    And I soooooo agree with the quote!

  4. Wonderful woodpecker photos Cindy. I'm always happy to see woodpeckers, and the Yellow=bellied Sapsucker is a very nice catch!

  5. Great shots! Thanks for posting!

  6. Great shots! Put out some bark butter and you will see the Sapsucker again and again. Mine in NC is addicted to the butter.

  7. Nice Cindy love these guys. Thanks
