Yellow-bellied sapsuckers

An excellent friend saw her first yellow-bellied sapsucker this weekend at the Garden.

It wasn't so long ago that I saw my first confirmation that sapsuckers actually exist (we see their evidence everywhere). I saw a pair last weekend (remarkably), but had seen several at the Garden (with my gardening companion) a couple of weeks ago. He remembered that we saw our first sighting last fall (at the Garden).


  1. We have had a couple yellow-bellied here in the past year or so. Hope to have them back again.

  2. I saw my first of the season Yellow-bellied Sapsucker today while raking leaves.

  3. I'm wondering if perhaps they're more abundant this year?

    It was exciting to see a couple last weekend and hear about my friend's sighting.



Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
