The only thing better than getting a shot of a juvenile Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius) is getting two together😍 #yellowbelliedsapsucker #sapsucker #sphyrapicusvarius #elkislandnationalpark #parkscanada #amiskwuchetrail #birds🐦 #birding #birdwatching #birdlover #bird_lover #birdphoto #birdphotography #wildlifephoto #wildlifeshots

In the forests of the Midwest there are seven species of woodpeckers. Downy, Hairy, Red-headed, Red-bellied, Sapsucker, Flicker, and Pileated. While the Downy and Red-bellies are the most common, this Yellow-bellied Sapsucker is the only one whose winter and summer ranges don’t overlap. We are caught in the middle and usually only observe them twice a year during migrations. #yellowbelliedsapsucker #sapsucker #woodpecker #ornathology #birdsaddict #birdsadored #birding #birdlife #birdwatcher #your_best_birds #bestbirds #bestbirdshots #eyespybirds #exclusivebird #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #pocket_birds #fabulousshot #amazing_birds #splendid_birds #perfect_birds #birds_illife #bird_captures #king_birds #husonhardwoods

Here’s a #smudgestick I made that I’ve been using for years and patching up as I prepare for my upcoming mandala class. It’s made of all #feathers that I have found on my path and as some feathers singe or disintegrate, I add new ones . The latest are the far left #longisland #duck and the far right, #bluejay . It has #wildturkey #woodpecker #swan #crow #cardinal #yellowbelliedsapsucker #seagull and #amethyst . I haven’t been making them them to sell for years, but if you are looking to buy one, check out my friend Jerika @lovevitality . Now time to get out the #smudge and do some #sage and #palosanto #smudging 🙏🌈🌬 #sacredspace #clearing #clearingenergy #feather #healing #sacredsmoke Oh those #iridescent blue feathers! 💙

Seen this on your trees? It's the calling card of the yellow-bellied sapsucker. The sap wells they create provide nourishment for a plethora of insects and mammals, and over thirty species of birds including Cape May and yellow-rumped warblers, nuthatches, and hummingbirds. Sap runs in both the xylem (sapwood) and phloem (inner bark). Sapwood is what farmers drill deep into to collect sap for maple or birch syrup. It has a 2%-3% sugar content before it is boiled and reduced to syrup. By contrast, sapsuckers tap into the phloem which is 20%-30% sugar. They prefer hemlocks, white birch, basswood, sugar maple, and apple trees. It's no coincidence that the early northern migration of sapsuckers is followed by the summer migration of hummingbirds. The next time you see a maple tree with the telltale rows of holes, stop and take a look. And if you see fresh sap flowing, have a taste of pure nectar, courtesy of a woodpecker. . . . #yellowbelliedsapsucker #whitebirch #natureprovides #walkinthewoods #observe #fieldandforest #birdkingdom

A juvenile Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius) doing it’s thing this morning in Elk Island National Park. You can see the ‘wells’ it creates in the tree trunks to collect sap and trap insects😊 #yellowbelliedsapsuckers #yellowbelliedsapsucker #birds🐦 #sphyrapicusvarius #wildlifeshots #elkislandnationalpark #parkscanada #amiskwuchetrail

Put the Northern Flicker and Yellow bellied sapsucker into the aviary the other day. Initially a rough start for Flicker since he has been on cage rest for quite a while from a broken wing. We were not even sure if it would fly again but he is now building muscle and looking great! #livingskywildliferehab #wildliferescue #wildliferehabilitation #northernflicker #yellowbelliedsapsucker

I am seeing juvenile birds everywhere! This is a juvenile Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius) As their name suggests, sap is their main food source. Sapsuckers drill wells for sap all year long and prefer trees with high sugar content, such as birch and maple trees. #bird #birdsofinstagram #yellowbelliedsapsucker #birdfacts #wildlifephotography #wildlifeconservation #birdsarecool #woodpecker

Day 6: This is actually a little bit older one (is #waybackwednesday still a thing?) that I thought I’d share for today because I’m not home and I can’t find my sketchbook. 😑 But I liked the way it turned out so I thought I’d share again. This is one of the few I decided not to do pen detail on. This is a Yellow-bellied sapsucker. I wouldn’t be a birder if it weren’t for this little guy! . . #yellowbelliedsapsucker #woodpecker #birdart #100daysofbirds #watercoloring #birdingart

[EN] This female yellow-bellied sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius) is not at its first meal on this tree trunk. Woodpeckers, as primary excavators, can be considered as architects of forest biodiversity that we observe in North America. Indeed, through their breeding and feeding activity, they generate cavities in the trees that will eventually be used by a wide variety of birds and mammals. (http://publications.gc.ca/collections/collection_2015/ec/En4-261-1998-eng.pdf) . . [FR] Cette femelle pic maculé (Sphyrapicus varius) n'en n'est pas à son premier repas sur ce tronc d'arbre.

Day 2 of #100daysofbirds : this is a mixed media piece I did for last year’s fall conference at the #OklahomaArtsInstitute at #QuartzMountain . The string in the center unwraps from the buttons and it opens up, to show the inside in pic 2. Here is the explanation of it: . The front panels are 4 birds that I consider significant to my birding journey. The bottom is a Yellow-bellied sapsucker, my first bird that started it all. The left is a Wood stork, the first rare sighting I ever went way out of my way to try and spot. The top is a Barred owl; I’ve been obsessed with owls since I was a kid and this is an owl I got to have an up-close experience with. The right is a Heerman’s gull, the subject of the best bird photograph I’ve ever taken. . The inside is binoculars and a collage of birds, and colors and images that represent the environments of birding. . If you’ve read this far, thanks for being interested! 😉 . #100dayproject #art #mixedmedia #collage #birds #artistsoninstagram #birdsofinstagram #birdart #birding #yellowbelliedsapsucker #woodstork #barredowl #heermannsgull #binoculars

A yellow bellied sap sucker. The world is a better place for having a bird called that in it. Not exactly painted from life, but there was one flying around as I copied this from the bird book #catskill #yellowbelliedsapsucker

One of our new additions, a juvenile female Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker. We have multiple families of Downy’s and Hairy’s. You hear the Pileated’s in the woods but are not near the house, generally. The male Sapsuckers we use to hear EVERY morning in the back of the property banging away on our dog fence. You see, the sound from the pecking of the fence was MUCH more loud and impressive than a meager tree. Clearly he impressed someone because we now have babies. #birds #birdsofinstagram #woodpecker #yellowbelliedsapsucker #ontariobirds #ontariowildlife #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #lanarkcounty #pakenham #mississippimills

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius) • Found myself a nesting cavity with baby sapsuckers inside. I could hear them calling as their parents came and went to feed them.

Local Folkstore Artist Susan Robinson (who has been painting realistic nature scenes on panel and driftwood for over 40 years) just stopped by the Folkstore to drop off one of her latest works - “Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers on Wood.” Just look at those details!

For several weeks in early spring during migration, two or three pairs of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers were in the area. They hung around foraging and checking out dead trees, then suddenly moved on. Typically they winter in the Southern States and migrate to Canada during breeding season. But it was really great to see them, even if only for a few short weeks. #yellowbelliedsapsucker #sapsucker #sapsuckers #ornathology #bird_captures #bestbirdshots #birding #birdlife #birdphoto #birdphotography #your_best_birds #pocket_birds #perfect_birds #birdextreme #birdsaddict #birdsadored #splendid_birds #sassy_birds #total_birds #woodpecker #husonhardwoods

Went out for a walk in the meadow because i spotted a couple of does with their fawns...wanted to snap a photo... of course the ladies caught wind of me and were long gone by the time I reached the meadow’s edge... but this #handsome fella was sure calling out to have his #photo taken!

This picture comes with a story: There's a yew tree at the end of our drive near an often busy road that is home to migrant yellow-bellied sapsuckers during the coldest months of the year. While a discerning ear may from time to time hear a bird flitting from branch to branch up above, actually catching a glimpse of one through the dense thicket of branches and needles is a rarity. Getting a clear shot with a lens? Nearly impossible. They never seem to stay in one spot for more than a few seconds, leaving little time to find them, to get an angle, to focus, and to capture a clear shot before they fly away once again. After spending roughly an hour each afternoon for nearly two cold February weeks - braving the bitter cold and straining my neck to search hopefully up through the gaps in the branches - I was finally able to capture this shot. While it's not necessarily the best shot I've ever snapped, it is one I am particularly proud of, as it was hard-earned, and it gave me an immense feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment in the end. Thanks to all of you who have joined me on my new Instagram adventure during its first week. I'm having a lot of fun with it, and I hope to share with you all many more photos in the future. Going off-grid for a couple of weeks, but I hope to have some great new shots to share with you when I return. Cheers! 😁
