Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

Had my first of the year Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Sphyrapicus varius hanging out in the maple tree in my front yard. I got my 14 year old to come look and when I told him what it was I realized "sapsucker" was much funnier to him than it was to me. I may wait to tell him about Goatsuckers (Family Caprimuligidae) and Tits (Family Paridae).

Keep looking up!
