Hi all

It's that time of year again, when the woods start to go quiet, as the
males songs are replaced by the insessant  begging of fledglings, and you
start to pay more attention to the birds that you see, like a
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker that has found the perfect drumming tree: An
aluminium ladder! The racket it makes reminds me of someone banging pots
and pans together, just before they yell "Supper time!" When he finally
came into view, it appeared that his beak was a bit blunter than it should
be..
