Judging by the extreme number of sap holes all around the trunk both high and low on all of the trees in this yard, this is not the first sapsucker to have visited. The Discussion Group has posted sightings of one or two on almost an annual basis. It seems that they have been sighted in Branch, Trepassy, Portugal Cove South and
tree found last year that had many holes drilled. Is it possible that there are more Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers around waiting to be found?
While this is no great shot, it is the only one that I have of this bird in flight. I thought it might be useful to show the underside in case any one goes sapsucker hunting.
