sapsucker holes – March 25 2007

 

 sapsucker holes – March 25 2007

These holes in this tree are made by the yellow bellied sapsucker. They make the holes which allow the sap to come out which attact insects which the woodpecker then eat. It’s basically a insect trap made by a bird. Pretty ingenious.
