Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Sphyrapicus varius

Date

December 5, 2013

Description

An interesting sapsucker that turned up during the winter. It has mostly yellow-bellied traits including lack of red spot on the nape which is apparently diagnostic for this species at this time of year. But perhaps it is just an odd red-naped, or a hybrid.

Dan Cooper emailed me saying he saw an odd likely yellow-bellied sapsucker just down the road earlier in the month, perhaps same bird.
