Thanks Hank Golet for your sighting and report of seeing a Yellow-bellied sapsucker there in Old Lyme into May 25th. This lone male bird was reported tapping on a dead tree there for weeks. Seems it was trying to set up a territory and/or attract a mate. Wonder what would have happened if it indeed found one?
This is by far the furthest south this woodpecker has been reported suspect of being Territorial away from it's historic breeding range. Thanks again for posting the sighting Hank.
