Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers live in both deciduous and coniferous forests. Typical signs that a Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers live nearby are horizontal lines of holes in the trunks of trees. Their main diet, as their name suggests, is tree sap, but they do eat insects and fruit. This type of woodpecker can grow to be 1.5-1.9 oz. and have a wingspan of 13.4-15.7 in. Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers make a “quee-ah quee-ah” noise and also make a mewing noise. They are protected on the US Migratory Bird lists.
