Then I got this bonus - I was at the computer, and I saw a bird land on the trunk of the oak tree I can just see out the window. I was able to get photos from the bedroom (through 2 dirty windows, but Photoshop came through), and it turned out to be this juvenile Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker.

I'm assuming it's a juvenile, although I think it's probably undergoing its adult moult. It's neither as brownish nor as streaked as the picture on the Cornell site, but. the adults have a red crown, and the adult males have a red throat.

It's pretty distinctive because of the "S-shaped" eye stripe, which continues down to the shoulder, and the speckled back, compared to the white backs of our more common Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers.

Good photo of him, Don. To my knowledge, I don't think I've seen one before. In the future I will look for the "S-shaped" eye stripe.
Bonus sightings are always good!!

Good capture, Don. Thanks.

Interesting.... I thought it might be a downy or hairy woodpecker. Now I wonder if I've been identifying some birds all wrong. I guess I'd better pay closer attention. Congratulations on a great picture.

I saw the snowshoe hare again today but I didn't think I could take a photo through the window screen.
