Yellow-bellied sapsucker, juvenile I believe, feasting on insect larvae from the tree.

QUOTED IMAGE

Great capture, Bill. I like the colors of the sapsucker, and the wood...really nice.

Another first, a Cactus Wren (well I hope it is a Cactus Wren), it looks like a wren eh, and every time I saw one on
the trip it was either on or very close to a cactus ;)

What a beautiful bird the male pheasant is.

Lots of people shoot them and eat them. I prefer to watch them and photograph them. I'd rather have tea and cake than pheasant. :p
