another 1st??

April 28, 2011

i was on the deck taking hummingbird pics when something flew threw to the tree…..i thought it was a hairy woodpecker @ first…..i had my 55mm lens on so i couldn’t zoom in to get a good shot  — had to crop this.  sure looks like a sapsucker to me????  what do you think???  oh man exciting!

i can’t believe how close he is letting me get!  crazy!  so awesome!!  🙂

when the flash would go off it would startle him!

2 female red bellied woodpeckers…..the one by the suet did not move an inch!  she just froze……as soon as the other one flew off she started eating.

pretty great evening!  so glad tomorrow is friday!  looking forward to the weekend……and of course birding!

    So sorry I haven’t visited for awhile. Man have I missed out-
    All I can say is WOW. You’ve gotten some great shots and I believe that is a sapsucker too; a yellow bellied? My hummer feeder is up, but no sighting yet, I would think it should happen any day now.
    You got some great shots- hope they continue to let you get so close. Have Fun!!
