My summer feeders do not include suet, so I have been surprised this past week at the appearance of a male Yellow Bellied Sapsucker at the peanut feeder. It came by itself for a few days, but last evening at around 8 PM I saw two. One sat on the top of the pole, and the male repeatedly took peanut pieces to it. I assumed it was feeding a female, but the red parch was lacking and I decided on juvenile instead. The male has returned several times today, but usually by itself. It must enjoy those unsalted peanuts.
A Tufted Titmouse came to feed yesterday, a bird I have not had at the feeders in recent weeks. -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/Cayugabirds 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/CAYU.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
