Crazy About Birds

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

This is a male yellow-bellied sapsucker (the female has a white throat). They are, like the dark-eyed junco and the white-throated sparrow, winter residents here. Sweet little things! Bigger than the downy and hairy, but smaller than the red-bellied. I hear them a lot - more often than I actually see them. The noise that they make that I recognize sounds a bit like a cat - a sort of mewing noise.

I always forget about Wild Wednesday. But today I remembered!
