Yellow Bellied Sapsucker




He is the first colorful bird I've seen around the house in a couple of months.  No Cardinals, Blue Jays, Blue Birds, Finches of any kind have been seen.  We wonder if the drought in our area has them living elsewhere.


Happy New Year everyone!

we have zero birds, not one and not one squirrel, we have a hawk, he is about 20 to 24 inches tall. we saw him sitting on the fence in the front yard and we hear him and his spouse screaming while hunting. for the first time ever we do not have a squirrel anywhere.

Beautiful woodpecker! We had one visit the feeders a couple of winters ago, but haven't seen any since.

Wonderful bird - one landed on my feeder pole for about 2 seconds and was gone and I've not seen him again.

Here in Coastal VA we see mostly Starlings and Cow Birds. Neither are friendly, both are messy! I miss our assortment of pretty birds in NC.

Nice capture!

I have basically quit feeding the birds cause the starlings get it all. They will clean out the feeder in an afternoon. I miss watching the birds though.
