Canada: Hummingbird feeding off Sapsucker's trick in stunning contribution

Remarkable contribution to hummingbird survival made possible by Sapsucker's feeding behavior in deciduous forests of North America. A family of Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers seen in the footage, a type of woodpecker that lives in Eastern Canada, create numerous tiny aligned holes in a tree deep enough to let sap out. Trees in deciduous and broadleaf forests can sometimes be seen bearing hundred of these little holes that seem to have been made by an automated machine.

In a surprising display of the contribution between two different species in the wild, a hummingbird is attracted to the freshly created sweet drink. It flies and hovers near it, sporadically plunging its tiny beak and visibly draining the content of the small holes. It comes in competition with a wide variety of bugs present in the nature that are also attracted to the sugar-filled drink that begins leaking out of the tiny holes.

Returning Sapsuckers also drink from the previously made holes while resting in place. They sometimes take advantage of the opportunistic tiny meals that are the careless ants walking around and straight to their death. The extraordinary behavior displayed by the Ruby Throated Hummingbird to insure a proper diet can perhaps explain why so many nectar-drinking birds can thrive in an environment with a lack of it.

The footage was filmed in 4K Ultra High Definition in late August in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. For licensing up to 4K UHD: 1-800-208-3340 - info@the4kguy.com © The 4K Guy 2018 www.the4kguy.com www.twitter.com/the4kguy www.youtube.com/the4kguy www.facebook.com/the4kguy www.instagram.com/the4kguy
