Red-breasted Sapsucker at Ashurst Lake

I went out to Ashurst Lake today, hoping to find an interesting gull or duck and was instead surprised by an extremely cooperative Red-breasted Sapsucker. It was mostly foraging in the deciduous trees that are on either side of the boat launch.IMG_2480 (2).JPGIMG_2486 (2).JPGIMG_2506.JPGIMG_2524 (2).JPG

Great photo! Same bird was present in the same location on October 28 when I was looking at the long-tailed duck. I suspected red-breasted, but was unable to get photo, then I started wondering if I was seeing things. Whit

Concurred, it's was seen today by many on a walk sponsored by Jay's Bird Barn. Nice looks at this beautiful bird.
