Sapsuckers and Signs
Nests built in trees become visible, cavities that may have served as nesting sites are revealed, and sapsucker holes, that may have been feverishly drilled last spring, stand out.
When we went on our bird walk at Algonkian Park last Saturday, we came across a tree along the river that had signs of sapsucker activity – a row of sapsucker holes, so level and so evenly spaced.
Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers themselves were flitting through the forest as well and it was great to see this connection.
To learn about Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, read this article by the Smithsonian – it’s fascinating!
