Papa Yellow Bellied Sapsucker feeds babies.

Recently, I saw a papa yellow-bellied sapsucker feeding his young through a small hole about 12 feet up in a hemlock tree. I watched him come back to the nest with insects for the loudly peeping chicks four times in a few minutes.

I didn't see the momma. Maybe she was taking a breather! Or out for brunch with the other new moms? On the trail to Laura's Tower, June 23.
