One of the great pleasures of retirement is the extra time it gives you to spend with grandchildren. While walking on the path at Cochran Shoals, this adult Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, rare for these parts, flew to a tree just a few feet away and was spotted by my grandson. Cochran Shoals is national parkland that runs along the Chattahoochee River just outside the perimeter highway for about a mile and a half. Its a great place to see water birds and the occasional woodpecker.
We both whipped out our cameras to see if we could photograph this elusive neighbor. The picture above is our prize. My grandson wanted their to be no confusion about which of the two Clinton's on the hike spotted the woodpecker first. Hence, the title of this blog entry and the photo. This picture, along with others of wild Atlanta, can be found on the 13 Plus 1 Gallery of Photo by Kayak at https://kayak.smugmug.com/East-Coast/ or through a link on the Photos page of Readjanus.com, the host of this blog.
