A yellow-bellied sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius), a medium-sized woodpecker, perched on a tree in Central Park in New York City, New York, USA. These sapsuckers drill neatly organized rows of holes through which it does not "suck" the sap, but uses a brush-shaped tongue to lap it up. The red coloring on its head and throat indicates a male.
