Red-naped Sapsucker


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.

    I’d be delighted to have a creature like this look down its beak at me. I’ve been seeing
    a three-toed male in these woods, more frequently earlier this spring.
