Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in Redwood Valley

Sunday March 26, 2006

Geoff and I watched a male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker in Bruce and Ann
Gove's yard at Fisher Lake Drive in Redwood Valley this morning. The
bird was working the birch trees near the road until a Sharp-shinned
Hawk flew in, spooking the Sapsucker and two Mourning Doves.

The bird has been seen at this location for at least a week and the
three birches are easily visible from the road. They're in the front
yard of the first house on the right at the corner of Fisher Lake and
Tomki Road.
