Yellow-bellied Sapsucker knocks on my door

Howdee all,

Seems like we have had just about any bird you can think of tap on our windows…ok, maybe I exaggerate. We have had Brown-headed nuthatch, Cardinal, Purple Finch, Black-capped Chickadee,American Robin,Downy Woodpecker, Red-breasted nuthatch, Ruby-crowned kinglet, Tufted Titmouse and a few more that I am probably forgetting.

Today we had a new visitor…wish the screen wasn’t in the way…
