Looking out my window

Yellow-rumped warbler
Red-bellied woodpecker
Taking an inspirational break from my current project, I went to the windows of my studio hoping to spy some waterfowl. I found instead lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers and a female Red-bellied Woodpecker feeding on the large hackberry trees that line the bank. The berries you see in the warbler shot are consumed by nearly every migrating bird. The common name for the hackberry tree is sugar berry. The woodpecker may enjoy some berries, but it spent more time investigating the crevices of broken limbs.
