The red-naped sapsucker [Sphyrapicus nuchalis] is a medium-sized woodpecker common to the lower elevations of the Rocky Mountains. They drill holes in trees and feed on sap as it wells into the holes. They also eat insects, seeds, and berries.
This male was chipping holes into a ponderosa pine.
Another sign of spring - a colony of Great Blue Herons building their nests.
No herons in this one - just sunrise coming behind the leafless trees and the glassy surface of a pond.
The same Eagles as yesterday, actually. At least I think so.
Better light today, but not as much flying around. In fact, both eagles stayed perched the whole time I was watching them - about half an hour. They did do a bunch of calling and posturing right around the time the sun came up.
