we have a Buckthorn tree in our backyard. Other summers I have noticed it is favourite place for sapsuckers to visit. Now I know why! The trunk of the Buckthorn is riddled with holes and its trunk is glistening with sap. Yesterday I set my birdcam up on a tripod focused on the tree trunk. Downloading was a delight!!!! Yes, the sapsucker appeared there, a male adult and a juvenile but no sign of a female with yellow on her markings yet, but the really neat surprise was to see
a hummingbird feeding
there sipping the sap and also a couple of orange butterflies,;
anglewings I think
a question mark, or maybe they are commas, I don't know which for sure.
This morning I got this picture above of the adult male. I find its colouring so beautiful! We also have
a young Downy Woodpecker which is seen feeding at the tree trunk often.
