    Here's one I have been trying to get for about 4 years.

    I have seen this guy from a distance in the woods many times but have never seen him on one of my perches until today....the fabled Yellow Bellied Sapsucker.

    This is a big milestone for me as it completes my image collection of all the Woodpeckers that typically inhabit Kentucky.

    A very good start to 2016

    Nice capture and congrats Joel on completing your WP collection.....6? I got my YBS last winter....and I've only seen it once this winter....he's always on the suet this winter.
    BTW....had a Pileated WP last week...pretty early for us.....I usually see them in our backwoods mid March to April. Unusual winter; very dry and above average temps so far.

    Thanks Bill.

    The Pileated's live here year round and the last 3 or 4 seasons they have been regular visitors and not too hard to image.

    Yes ...the six Woodpecker species include Downy, Hairy, Red Headed, Red Bellied, Yellow Bellied Sapsucker and Pileated.

    Although technically the Pileated and the Sapsucker are both a different genus than the other woodpeckers.

    And then there is the Northern Flicker ... looks like a woodpecker and behaves like one too. Should it be included? ( I have that image as well)

    Joel.....don't go getting too technical w/me....it will hurt my brain.

    MA Audubon states we (the state) have 6; hairy, downy, red-bellied, YBS, pileated and flicker. I have the 6.

    I'm waiting for a perched shot of the YBS, to improve my capture of him.

    Tufted Titmouse



    7D MKII
    500mm
    ISO 1000
    f/8
    1/250*

    * 1 Einstein strobe unit on a lightstand with softbox placed about 10 feet from right and angled at about 45 degrees (triggered with pocket wizard)
    This was set to a very low power to ensure a very short flash duration (around 1/12,000 sec) but these flashes do not sync above a shutter speed of 1/250 which makes it challenging to stop action.

    Nice Sapsucker! I have been doing more birding than actually taking pictures lately; however, I found myself in Florida a week ago with some free time and visited one of my favorite watering holes.
