Red-Naped x Red-Breasted Sapsucker in Hillcrest

Red-Naped x Red-Breasted Sapsucker in Hillcrest
By – 10:24 am
Hi, All,This morning I spotted a sapsucker in neighbor Mike Evans’ live oak (the one that attracted an American Redstart a couple of months ago), which I can see from my deck.  After chasing it around the neighborhood to get good enough pics to ID it, I lost it when it flew over my house to the west.  It moved quickly from tree to tree, and I got the sense it was foraging and not finding what it wanted.  So probably not a chaseable bird.Checklist with ID photos here:  Checklist with hybrid sapsucker photosCheers,  Tuck RussellHillcrest
