There are 2 species of sapsuckers. This yellow-bellied sapsucker, common to southern Canada
and the northern United States has mottled plumage of black and white, yellowish underbelly and
red patches on the forehead and chin. The sapsucker drills even rows of holes from which sap
flows. This sap is eaten by the bird, as well as those insects which are attracted to the
sweet syrup. The Williamson's sapsucker is found on the Pacific coast.
