Red Breasted Sapsucker

As the saying goes "birds of a feather flock together"...

That little critter was merrily swapping trees with the downy woodpecker posted previously. A few more were playing hide-and-seek up, down and around neighbouring trees and it took me some time to determine who was who in all that commotion. In the poor light I had even initially thought they were one and the same sort of bird.

    A very fine shot with excellent detail and colour in the bird, along with good texture and other nice splashes of colour in the shot, all adding up to a great wildlife image.
    best wishes from Lawson.
