Yellow-bellied Sapsucker – Sphyrapicus varius

‘Peep’ Series – Begging youngs
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker nestlings hungry and begging non-stop for food from their nest – a cavity in the trunk of a dead Paper Birch. The calls get loud when the parent arrive and briefly stop when it feeds them, to start again with even more intensity!
