This male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (red throat) appeared at my front door in Fredericton around 5 pm He appeared slightly injured, as he was holding his right wing out a bit (as can be seen in the picture). I was able to grab the bird -- which squawked in protest -- and place him in a safer place higher up. After a few minutes, the bird appeared to recover and flew into a tree in the next yard.
Wow that is quite an image!
Nice bird...nice story....nice outcome!!
