Red-Breasted Sapsucker

My first time seeing this bird, and capturing a photo of one too! He was flitting around this trunk in Big Trees State Park on the North Grove trail.

I came up with Downhill Dali to see the Dogwoods in bloom. We were supposed to go with a huge Meet-up on Sat. but rain and T-storms are predicted all week-end canceling it. The forecast is right. It’s been raining since last night.
