Sap Lick

Five species of wasp, two species of butterflies, several species of flies, and at least one ant species in plentiful numbers were all over this Wych Elm last week. The tree was practically gushing sap and although it was October, there was a feeding frenzy going on.

With guest appearance by a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, who was picking things off the trunk heedless of me.

    Sounds like a late Octoberfest version of a termite hatch. I’m surprised there weren’t more birds enjoying the cornucopia

    Not sure I would have gotten in so close to some of those visitors!
