Another visitor....

This fellow was at the feeders when we got our one and only big snow.  I decided he was a yellow bellied sap-sucker....not positive but he did have a belly tinged with yellow. It was taken through my window...and the photo is cropped. 

It is supposed to warm up next week...if it does, I plan on at least washing these two windows here in the dining room.  Maybe I can get better  photos then.

I did not touch my sewing machine yesterday.  We ran to Terre Haute...I did birthday shopping for Lorelei and Roger did a little bit of shopping at Gander Mountain.  That is a sporting goods store in case you didn't know.

We may get out and go for a much needed drive later on...it has been ages since we have been on one.  Just need to decide where to go.

I think it's a great shot Rose. I had a boss back in Illinois who was from Terre Haute, and her mother still lived there, but now I heard she's living up where we used to live.

what a sweetie all fluffed up to keep warm

It looks like a Yellow Bellied to me too. Maybe a juvenile female. Nice shot!

He DOES look like a sapsucker! We had one that came to our big maple tree every day. He drilled rows of holes all around the tree, at each hole stopping to take a big long sip, then poop. We eventually had to cut the tree down. Wish we had a suet feeder then!

Enjoy your ride, Rose! I feel like I need a good few hours of time with my husband and my camera.

Great photo of him! If I didn't know how far apart we live from each other, I would swear it was the same fat fluffed up little sapsucker I had here. I think they look like dirty downys, but it sure looks a lot prettier in your shot.

He's a pretty one! I just refilled my feeders today. It's fun to take day trips...have fun when you go!
