Re: Gray Flycatcher & Red-breasted nuthatch @ Harry Griffen Regional Park

Hi Trent,

That first photographed Red-breasted Sapsucker looks dead-on for the northern subspecies (S. r. ruber), given the vivid red that extends well down the breast and the sharp demarcation from the yellow belly. Further, the back-spotting is greatly limited. Jimmy McMorran had one up the coast a few years back. Still no records in the Orange County. Very cool.
