After checking the continuing White Wagtail at Santa Cruz, I came north today and went by 1650 Stage Rd. in Pescadero for my third attempt at the Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker. Third time was a charm as it arrived at the well-drilled eucalyptus almost immediately. It crossed the road for a bit, then back to its favorite tree and then off beyond the house. I waited about ten minutes and it came back to the eucalyptus where I finally got some half-decent shots. Then back beyond the house. I waited another 20 minutes or so but it didn't reappear. Great bird for the new year.
