Sapsucker Fast Food

Posted in

A Red-breasted Sapsucker, taken April 12, 2013, at Mt. Tabor Park in Portland.  This woodpecker drills holes in bark to extract the sap, holes that also afford other small animals further food opportunities.   If the number of holes in this tree is any indicator, it’s a favorite spot for sapsuckers to dine in the park.  The bird is normally found only on the west coast of North America.   Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1000, f5.6, ISO 2500, Canon 400mm f5.6L lens.
