This photo of a male Yellow-bellied Sapsucker was taken on June 5th, 2007 at Newton Hills State Park in South Dakota. The elm tree he's perched on is known as the "sapsucker tree", along Sergeant Creek in Newton Hills. The sapsuckers seem to use it every year. Here, a male is visiting the dripping sap wells at the tree, picking up the (quite disgusting looking!) insects feeding on the sap. Photo taken with Canon 20D, 400 5.6L.
