YBSA in Downtown Sacramento
- Hi birders,
This morning at the lightrail stop at 12th and O St in Downtown Sacramento,
I heard and then was able to briefly see a juvenile plumaged Yellow-bellied
Sapsucker. The softer, nasally mew call caught my attention and I was able
to get brief views of the bird fairly high up. My train came shortly after
and the bird moved around the branch and out of view. This is an odd spot
and I have never seen any sapsucker workings here before so I have no idea
how long the bird will stick. My sighting was at about 9:37 am, right
before the 9:39 am train. Good birding.

But words, our words,
Only so much more sweet?"
