I'm beginning to wonder if I should have stayed at home to bird this morning. Now a juvenile Yellow-bellied Sapsucker is foraging on a Tulip Tree while a Hairy Woodpecker is on the suet feeder.

While making my lunch (after birding at Leesylvania SP), I noticed a female Purple Finch on the nyjer feeder with some Goldfinches. A mob of House Sparrows was on and under the suet feeder, and among them a Scarlet Tanager was picking up suet crumbs, then began chasing House Sparrows.
