Minnesota has only one species of Sapsucker, the yellow-bellied. The Sapsucker in the above photo is a juvenile, he lacks the red cap and red throat of the adult male.
This photo shows why the bird gets the name yellow-bellied – although on this young bird its more of a yellow “wash”.
I’ve never seen a Sapsucker on the peanut feeder before. I hope he gets the message and moves along down south where his relatives spend the winter. Although very rarely a Sapsucker may winter over in Minnesota, most go to Central America for the winter.
