Rare bird in garden.


So rare around these parts that some birders came three times to see it. May not be rare where you are however. A Red-naped Sapsucker, over 20 people have come to see it in our garden Mt Ash. Has the site been gone for a while? I couldn't get in over a week or more so I gave up as I thought it was close.
