Sunday, January 6, 2018 Red-breasted Sapsucker!

Seward, Alaska

Due to concerns about marauding black bears, the responsible homeowner did not put up the birdfeeders and suet feeders until recently. To his amazement, a male RED-BREASTED SAPSUCKER materialized and clung for life to the suet feeder in the cold.

Where does this bird (or species) go when we are not able to see it? 

The Hooded Merganser(s), Killdeer, and Red-breasted Sapsucker are all unusual, out-of-range species that should not be here yet magically appear winter after winter.  

Tough birds, all!

Happy Birding!
