I just took a pause in editing the photos for this post for some breakfast, and spotted a pair of deer in the yard. It’s overcast and they are heading deeper into the bush, so no sense in trying to get a photo to add to the post.
This week, I’ve got some slightly better photos of the red breasted sapsucker that is hanging out at the top of my street, as well as some photos of a yellow bellied sapsucker (at least, to the best of my identification abilities, that is what it is, though they aren’t supposed to be in my area at all.
Here are my choices for the week, I hope you enjoy.
On my Saturday morning walk, I heard the loveliest singing from the trees, but was really having a hard time seeing the bird to get an ID. Once I loaded the photos onto the computer, I realized it was the yellow rumped warbler.
A yellow bellied sapsucker?
I believe this is a yellow bellied sapsucker… but if you have other ideas, please let me know!
The red breasted sapsucker.
The red breasted sapsucker loves to hang around the utility poles and make quite the racket.
I was surprised that this bunny hopped out of the bushes and close to the road when he/she could easily see Spencer and I walking along. I snapped this just before a car came along; luckily it hopped back into the bush and not the other direction.
