Yellow-bellied sapsucker

Sphyrapicus varius


The sapsuckers don't come to my yard too often but do stay a while when the juniper berries are ripe. Those berries are a real treat for American robins, cedar waxwings and the sapsuckers. This was an adult female; a couple immature birds with no red foreheads yet were also present.
