This woodpecker was very frustrated that he couldn't seem to run off his competitor and claim this as his territory. After a few noisy days at my kitchen window, he finally gave up.
This photograph is so cute. I have a cardinal who does this on one of my car mirrors at work.
Isn't that funny?! Great shot of him. He looks like a Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker. What a hoot! (Hoot?)
Fantastic capture! Wish I was lucky enough to have such a cute little bird on my window! :-)
Wow! This is a gorgeous photo!
This is a prize-winner, Jill!!What a capture!
Wow Gill what a super capture, beautifully on focus.I like this photo a lot!!
Fantastic capture. How did you do it without the bird fleeing from you? It's a remarkable shot.
Wonderful photo.. poor frustrated little bird.. And your new photo and haircut look simply marvelous....
Beautiful photography what it means to. Is Wonderful. Congratulations.
That's a marvellous shot. Full of hummour.
Lois, you have to feel for these creatures frustration.Thanks Elaine -- I didn't know that was what he was. I can see why he is a 'sap sucker'.Thanks JM, Hope, BN, Bev.Thanks Kate -- I was standing on my front deck and he was so busy with his pursuit, he didn't even notice me. Thanks Karen! You can't see all my wrinkles this way!Thanks istanbul!Thanks babooshka!
Just catching up, Jill. Just adore this photograph. What a shot, silly bird!
o wow what a splendid photo
Super shot, Jill, as are the rest of your recent posts. I hope Abraham Lincoln gets to see it.
Great shot! Looks like a real staand-off.
It's a Red-breasted Sapsucker.
This is a great photo! I was lead here by a google search of woodpeckers and Oregon. I too live in Salem and have a similar bird in our backyard tree. My kids are so excited that we went to the computer to see what type it is. Thanks for the lovely photo and thanks Maggie for the identification!
