Quandary Resolution 1524
noisome, yellow-bellied, Hobson's choice, nitid
The yellow-bellied sapsucker, its nitid black eyes sparkling acquisitively in the early morning sun, was busy drilling another neat circle of holes around the bole of the Atlantic cedar while, hoping to distract it, Mrs. Hull riffled through the Hobson's choice of suets in the fridge, knowing perfectly well that peanut was the only realistic option and that anything else (e.g., orange, raisin, apple, sunflower, hot pepper, insect) would hang there untouched in the suet feeder growing moldier and more noisome by the day.
