I'm not one the lucky people who get sap suckers to come to my suet feeders during the winter, so I rarely see them. I noticed a sap sucker feeding on sap trickling out of a Norway maple, one of the trees my husband trimmed last fall. The temp here in Meriden is now 12, up from 8 when I got up at 6:30. The trees are in full sun so the sap is running and staining the trunks dark with the amount coming from the cut scars.
