Seabeck, WA, United States
I was visiting Scenic Beach State Park in Seabeck, Washington in hopes of finding a red-breasted sapsucker. It was the final hours of the count and no one had yet posted one for Kitsap County. I searched the dense evergreen forest, but couldn’t find one. Before heading back to my car I thought I’d walk through a grassy area and to my surprise a red-breasted sapsucker was feeding at its sap wells at the base of a large big leaf maple tree. The bird was kind enough to tolerate my presence and pose for some photos.
