Yellowbellied Sapsuckers in Alabama

by Rebecca
(Hueytown, Ala)

While noticing what I knew were woodpeckers on a pine tree in my yard, I decided to get my binoculars and look. I knew I had never seen a woodpecker quite like it so I looked it up on the internet. I was glad to see it was a winter visit from a yellow-bellied sapsucker. There were two of them and I assumed they were eating insects in the tree. It always thrills me when birds migrate and I happen to catch a few in the spring, but rarely see the winter birds come thru headed south.
