This video was shot in our backyard nature preserve. It is over 2 minutes long but shows a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker drilling holes and drinking out of them in our birch tree. Enjoy and please share with others!

  1. Great use of the video! How nice to see the sapsucker at work. I’ve only seen him once or twice but never working to get the sap like this. Thanks for sharing!
