I have been called a yellow bellied sapsucker many times. Nice shots. Stay warm!
Back in the day - when being called a yellow-bellied sapsucker was the worst thing they said on tv --He's pretty well camouflaged among the tree limbs, isn't he?Diannawww.thesedaysofmine.com
Is it really called a yellow-bellied sapsucker? Oooo, I love that! I've been away from slang for so long... I think I'll try that out on hubby tonight just for fun!
I remember that...LOL....hopefully the sap will start running this weekend...
Do they really suck sap? I didn't know that. OK, I remember that being a terrible insult, too. Sigh, now, it would be nothing.
One of my favorite birds!!
I could see him when I enlarged the photo. He blends in pretty good.
He does have some good camo going on!
What a funny name for a bird...do they really suck sap? Great shots!
Yes, they really do tap the sap that runs in certain types of trees. This poor locust tree is riddled with rows of holes they drill (they're part of the woodpecker family) so that they can access the sap inside. Today is another FREEZE day so I'm not sure what they're eating out there. :)
I never knew there really was a bird called a yellow bellied sapsucker, I just thought it was a name I called my brothers. :)
so that's what they look like!
Howdy Girl Oh my gosh what happy memories you brought to mind today :)We use to call each other silly names like that when I was a very young cowgirl !Many moons ago.Love the tree photos and how wonderful is your sweet little tweetie hanging out in the locust tree.Thank you for sharing your fantastic images .Keep warm and remember Spring is coming soon :)Until next timeHappy Trails
hope it warms up for him soon. we might warm up to double digits today. hoo boy!just wondering...are they lily-livered as well? ;o)
Enlarging the picture I got to see this beautiful bird. The third is where best seen with its long beak.
So maybe when it freezes, they make sap smoothies?? Ya gotta wonder. Love your sunny and snow-less pictures. Thanks for stopping by our blog!
Very Cool :)
They can really blend in with the tree very well! Wonder what frozen sap tastes like?
Hello, first time on your blog and I was delighted, I will come back for sure for a closer and longer look!!! Hugs from Brazil, José
Lucky to get that shot -- with as cold as it's been. :)
Nice...I like the tree too!
