Since Swampfox is posting bird sightings, I will too.
On my walk to/from the mailbox (<1/4 mi each way), I pass the remnants of an apple orchard. Well, today I heard tapping (9-10 notes, fast to slow in a particular pattern), repeated 3 times. The bird was tapping on a metal street sign, and when I could see it I could tell it wasn't one of the woodpeckers I usually see here (downy, hairy, red-bellied; even pileated, tho not recently). It had red both above and below its beak! I looked it up in our bird book and discovered it was a yellow-bellied sapsucker; I saw its friend, too. They like old orchards. ;-)
