Greetings Mendobirders- This morning I saw an adult male YELLOW-BELLIED
SAPSUCKER in a California Coffeeberry tree at the UC Hopland R&E Center.
This tree is visited regularly by wintering Red-breasted Sapsuckers, and
we have seen a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker previously in the same tree
(2007), and also a male Red-naped Sapsucker (1998,99). It must produce
sufficient sap suitable for sucking.
