While the Alabama Sierra Club executive committee was meeting in Vestavia Hills on Saturday, I took the opportunity at every break to photograph the birds on the feeders in Margo Rebar’s beautiful back yard. Unfortunately, I was not able to get a clear shot of the yellow-bellied sapsucker who likes to hang upside down and eat from the bottom of this peanut suet feeder. As usual, the woodpeckers are shy, elusive creatures.
