The last fruits of our Cleveland Pear tree are hastily being taken by nearby birds and squirrels. I watched this female Yellow-bellied Sapsucker enjoy a few the other day...
|She picked the most shriveled ones dangling between the ripe ones|
|The fruits closest to the tree have already been taken|
|so it can be a challenge to reach the tiny fruits on the farthest twigs|
|360 degree head turn|
|When she tired of the fruits, she pecked around in the tree trunk for a while|
It's been a while since I've regularly posted here on my nature blog. I've been working on a genealogy project and book for my Dad so that has consumed much of my time. I hope everyone is doing well. Thank you for stopping in. Have a wonderful weekend!
