As I look through my old pictures, I realize that I only see a sapsucker every couple of years or so. Consequently, yesterday’s sighting was fun. Actually, it started with two of them sitting on a branch, but one promptly flew.
The bird that remained on the branch appears to be a female Red-naped Sapsucker.
