It was one of those days days where you can hear the pecking from afar. A noise from high atop the trees peaking your curiosity as to who is up there. A Downy, a Hairy?
On this afternoon it was an unexpected visitor a handsome Red-naped Sapsucker. While not extremely uncommon they are a species we only see a few times a year which made all that neck-craning and staring into the sun all the more worthwhile.
