Does birch syrup taste much different than maple syrup?

When I was growing up, we had a huge weeping birch tree in our front yard. I loved climbing to the top. Nobody walking by knew I was there. And on windy days, it would sway quite a bit, giving me a wild ride.

Sadly, the bronze birch borer has killed virtually every birch here in Fargo.

Aww. The Birch Tree walkway looks so nice. A same nice as the fish-eye Magnolias you've photographed multiple years.
