And I've now attached the photos from the poster (Lisa Brazis Vanderbilt, from Indianapolis, who gave me permission to share them).

People have been asking "where on Facebook"?
It's a private group, but if you're members, it's here:
The photos only show the bird and the tree trunk; the bark looks like a cypress to me.
The positive marks for Red-naped Sapsucker:
- Neatly divided white barring down the back
- Obvious red nape patch
Negative marks, suggesting possible hybrid:
- Apparently complete black border to the throat
- No obvious white at the chin in the photos I can see (though apparently some female RNSAs can have all red-throats?)

What looks to me like a photo of an adult female Red-naped Sapsucker was just posted on Facebook from an out-of-town birder. She reports it as being "behind the Conservatory of Flowers". I won't have a chance to have a look until tomorrow morning, but it would be great if someone else could get out there.
