We had a beautiful red-breasted Sapsucker in our yard on Pine Lake yesterday.

Hi Brett,
Hi Brett,

Red-breasted Sapsuckers from higher elevations move downslope during the winter. ?I suspect that the heavy snow that blanket our mountains so suddenly, resulted in great numbers moving downslope all at once. ?I have noticed that the greater the snowfall at lower and middle elevations, the more we see sapsuckers in the valleys and in the cities.

I too am enjoying them! ?

Hiya tweets,

I saw a Red-breasted Sapsucker (RBSA) outside my window yesterday. First one I had seen at my spot on Capitol Hill. A friend also reported seeing one in Medford, OR yesterday. I haven't been able to get online for a couple days because my computer is "in the shop" right now. I have been amazed at how many reports of RBSA there have been on this listserv and on the Central Valley Birds listserv in California. This seems an unusual amount of reportings and it makes me wonder - are there actually more of them showing up right now all over the west coast, or are they just being reported more because they are such a neat bird to see? Ideas? Thanks and stay safe in all of this snow!
