Young female Williamson’s Sapsucker (09/28/14, Sisters, OR)

I stopped in Sisters this afternoon coming back from Malheur NWR. I easily got my targets: Pinyon Jay, White-headed Woodpecker and Pygmy Nuthatch. While looking through a massive amount of birds on the east side of N Lafollete St (just north of the Railway traffic circle), I came across a pure Red-breasted Sapsucker and this young female Williamson’s Woodpecker. Neither are normally seen in Sisters around the Heavenly Acres.

Obsessed with birding, I started taking a pictures in '01 after a brief personalized intro by the incomparable David LaPuma. In July '09, I acquired a Canon EOS 50D with a 100-400mm IS lens to be able to shoot the fast-moving lbjs that were so difficult before. In Dec '14, I upgraded my body to a Canon 7D Mark II and immediately noticed a big improvement. Nevertheless, I'm first and foremost a birder, then a photographer.
