Wonderful images Vickie!

Does your West coast Sapsucker drill rows of holes to store food too?

Take care, Paul

Thanks, Paul. No, the Red-breasted Sapsucker doesn't store food that I know of. They drill holes to form sap wells where they return to sip sap and eat trapped insects. I've seen Hummingbirds frequent these sap wells.
