Sapsucker?? ID Help, please and Red-Bellied

5 posts in this topic

This guy came in early this morning when it was cloudy and wet, so the best I could get was 1/30 at ISO 800. He has the markings of a sapsucker, but is not the brown of a juvenile as listed in my books. Is he coming into maturity? This would be a new species for my yard, so would appreciate the confirmation. I stuck in a couple of my resident red-bellied from a couple weeks ago.

He has those two little red dots above his beak, but he sure doesn't look like the beauty that Stu posted.

And my red-bellieds:

Interesting! If I were to take a stab at it, I would say that it a juvenile Yellow-bellied...

Very nice work on the Red's!
