I get the feeling that many people think “Yellow-bellied Sapsucker” is a made up name, used in comedy sketches and in the funny papers.
There are actually four different sapsuckers in North America: Williamson’s, Red-breasted, Red-naped, and Yellow-bellied. The others are found in the mountain west. The Yellow-bellied variety visits us in the winter months.
These are pictures of the same bird. It left its perch, flew over my shoulder, and landed on the branch right behind me.
