This morning when it began to sleet, we’ve got a new visitor in our yard. A little Yellow-bellied sapsucker came over and knocked some holes in our Bradford Pear trees. The little guy used the tree as a protection from the ice rain. Once it stopped sleeting, the bird decided to fly into the neighbor’s tree. A little bit later, a Ruby-crowned Kinglet showed up to inspect the holes for some food. I guess, the Sapsucker and the Kinglet have a perfect food relationship. One does the hard work to get past the bark; eats until it is not hungry anymore. And the other one takes the rest, so the food source won’t go to waste. On top of that, they are a nice tree pest control.
