One of the things that I do when I am trying to ignore chores is stare out windows. I couple this with the Cornell Feederwatch Project and it makes me feel like I am wasting less time. Today I saw this visitor in my front yard eating bugs and perhaps berries off the holly tree. (Our hollies are prolific with berries this year. I am hoping this does not mean a long hard winter.) I have not seen this bird in my yard and rarely see it elsewhere, so I was truly excited and want to share. Photo taken through a double paned window...so not a crisp or great shot, but the species is recognizable...yellow-bellied sapsucker.
