Header contest - Tree bark- Red-naped sapsucker

Here is an interesting bark picture of a live hollow aspen with a nest of Red-naped sapsuckers in the Moody Creek area.


Here is another picture of a Red-naped sapsucker at Beaver Dick Park near Rexburg.  If you look close you can see the hole made by it so the sap would pool up in the holes.



Bark does not thrill me very much unless there is something happening other than bark growing.  My new header is more than just bark growing if you look very close.

Thanks "This is My Blog - Fishing Guy."

Cool header! The moth has great camouflage.
Beautiful sapsucker photos.

The Sapsucker is a neat bird. I've never seen one.

The header is great... That moth is hiding quite well, isn't he???

It took me a second to see who was hiding on the tree. Nice header!

I hope you won't think this a stupid question; do you know the difference between a sapsucker and a woodpecker?
Your header picture is terrific, nature is so amazing!

In the strange world of eblog my computer NEVER shows anyones "header" so I have to pass on this one. The sapsucker I can see though. That's a new one for me as ours here in MN are the "yellow bellied" variety.

Your header is great, he blends in beautifully. I like both of your photos of the sapsuckers, the last one is my favorite.

...your new header is pretty darn cool. How on earth did you see that fellow. He blends in perfectly.
I've never seen a Red-naped Sapsucker. I like him!

Bill: Beautifully captured, I agree there has to be something else with the bark. I love your little bark colored moth which I saw immediately.
