Yellow-bellied sapsuckers were here in droves yesterday. I like how they can perch on a birch and practically disappear.

Thank you; the second pose is actually the more typical.

Great shots of the young one Al, nice catch in #2 with his tail all fanned out.

Great shots Al. I like the first one best with the excellent bokeh that really helps the bird stand out.

Thanks, Don. I agree with you; I posted the second mainly to show the camouflage.

Thanks, guys; I appreciate your commenting. It's funny how one day these sapsuckers were all over the place and now nothing. I'm glad it was sunny.
