Woodpecker Type

The Yellow-bellied Sapsucker 
eats fruit and insects. 
He also drills tap holes in the trunks of trees in horizontal rows 
to find sap. When when he finds it, 
the woodpecker drills horizontal rows to get more. 
The black and white bird returns repeatedly to a good tree 
and drinks from those holes and drill new ones. 
Titmice, nuthatches, and hummingbirds 
also come harvest 
sap from these holes. 
My apple tree.
They love it.
