The sapsucker is a greedy fellow, who gets positively drunk on maple juice. I have seen one on a large sugar tree in such a befuddled condition that the best he could do was to cling to the bark and crawl around and around the trunk, while I pursued him till I was even dizzier than he and had to give up the attempt to lay hands on him.
Walter Prichard Eaton     June 1932
