Ballie and the Sapsucker


Jeff and I are going to the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife festival in a few weeks…Anyone else going?

We are also planning some Birding Festivals in May The New River Birding festival and The Biggest Week in Birding..Let me know if you will be going…

I am also hoping to pick some Morel mushrooms should be about prime time.


  1. How sweet! I love this. Great video close up of the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. Ballie's a beauty!

  2. That is so cute when she paws at the bird. I guess the sapsucker doesn't even see her.

  3. Cute video! Glad to see the kitty stay calm and not go crazy. Our cat would have bolted out the pet door and attacked the sapsucker in about 20 seconds.

  4. OMG that's too precious Dawn. lol I would never want to leave the RV with the birds coming up to the window the way they do. lol

  5. What a treat for both of you to get such a close look at the sapsucker.

  6. We had a bird fly into our reflective window today. Not good. But Ballie sure is cute.

  7. So cute, the bird and Ballie. Such a great view of the birdie. How do you get birds to sit and peck at your window?

  8. that's a gutsy bird!

    I hope the weather will warm up some for you. Don't know how it is where you are, but it's COLD here!

    What is bark butter?

  9. Howdee friends..

    We have reflective windows on our Gaelyn knows all to well this can be an issue..
    It is a blessing and a curse.

    I can see close up views of birds..but then sometimes they think that the woods continues and hit our window..some deaths have occurred.

    It seems to be better when we park close to trees and shrubs...and put feeders close to the Rv...that way if a bird does doesn't hit full force and hurt itself.

    I have tried pictures of owls and a few other things..we dont want to put things on the windows and damage them..

    If anyone has a solution ..I would love to know.

    Here is the recipe for the Bark Butter..or you can buy it at the Wild Bird Store...

    Thanks again for stopping by...

  10. What a sweet video. How wonderful to be so close to all those birds. Can the bird see inside? It looked like Ballie was trying to be slick and look like he was paying the bird no mind till he took a paw to the window. LOL


ok what do you really think?????
