Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker Study - 2012

Yesterday afternoon when I was out on the deck I noticed this Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker sunning itself on the back yard fence. Today I just happened to come by with my camera, 55-300mm lens, and tripod ready and there he was again. The first bit is a bit wobbly since I was using my tripod as a monopod while balancing it on a deck chair.

I've been doing a lot of bird watching over the past while, and the nice part is that a lot of different kinds of birds frequent our yard.

More on the Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker here:

Note that this is a type of woodpecker.
