I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Sunday bird blogging

Here's a beautiful yellow-bellied sapsucker at the feeders a few weeks ago.

For once, the yellow is clearly visible, although not exactly in the vicinity of his belly. I think that whoever named this bird just liked the way “yellow-bellied” sounded and went with that.

I woke up thinking that we had a rather gray and damp first weekend of spring, but at least it wasn't snowing. Then I looked at the date and realized it's not spring yet -- next weekend.

But it's in the 40's and 50's every day now, and a good rain earlier in the week washed away all the snow, so it does feel like spring has finally, finally arrived, even if it's not technically the case.
