This young yellow-bellied sapsucker was very vocal during feeding time, which helped me to locate the nest. After waiting at a comfortable distance away from the nest but yet be able to identify the species, both parents came alternately to feed its young. Several minutes passed between each feeding. There was no way of knowing how many young they were feeding, in only one shot did a young one show itself. I visited the area the next day and heard the young calling again for food but after that day it was quiet and I believe they had fledged. This was a unique experience for me and my son.
