Had a lovely Red-breasted Sapsucker in my yard this morning - new yard bird for me. Yay!
Unfortunately it was drilling holes in my Hawaiian koa tree, which has already been having trouble recently. Boo!
My poor tree is now weeping from the many sap wells. An Audubon's Warbler often comes in to probe the wells when the sapsucker leaves (or gets chased out by the irate me). A day of mixed emotions to be sure!
