Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

Posted on Nov 22, 2015

Oh man, here we go again, another Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius) looking like bark! This individual is surrounded by wells that it and others of its species have drilled, one of many such trees in an orchard in a town park. This wintering area is obviously a productive spot and when you can look like a tree all day long, even if you’re an occasionally louder than usual tree, no one is going to bother you.
