Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker
This morning I went to the Circle B Bar Reserve.  Just the name of it makes it worth a visit.  Apparently, the reserve used to be a cattle ranch.  We had a pretty good morning. The highlights were a Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker and 3 Roseate Spoonbills, and in one tree we saw a Blue-Grey Gnatcatcher, a Yellow-throated Warbler, a Black & White Warbler, a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet, a White-Eyed Vireo and a Tufted Titmouse.    The Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker was the first I've photographed, so this was a pretty good day.  I'll have to come back again to the Circle B Bar again soon.
