This Sap-sucker is drilling holes to beat the band in our two pine trees in the backyard. It wouldn't be so bad, but we planted those trees and want them to stay alive. The trees provide shade and take so long to grow. The bird gets mad and swoops me when I go out to take his picture. It is the price he must pay for killing my trees. Later in the day I saw the Downy Woodpecker and the Northern Flicker.
It must have been a woodpecker day!
