A little adventure from a clumsy flight of a juvenile YB Sapsucker, with a happy ending.
This first pic is moments after, I rescued this young Yellow-bellied Sapsucker from drowning in the pond. He was too weak to climb that stump. It took about 20 minutes, before he could make it up. He rested there for quite some time.Then he decided he would try to fly to the birch tree, but didn`t make it, he ended up hopping another 7' to it. When he made it up there, he made this weird thing with his mouth, as if trying to clear it`s throat but nothing came out. This went on for 4 or 5 min. After a bit of rest, from this ordeal, he flew back to the stream to get a bath, just as if, nothing had happened. He`s still come around several time a day to eat bugs and to take baths.
