Returning Red-breasted Sapsucker ssp. ruber


Christopher Adler
 

Hi all,

I visited Harry Griffen Park yesterday and took some photos of a 
Red-breasted Sapsucker. Nancy Christensen pointed out that it looked
like the northern subspecies individual that was seen at the same location
this past spring. 

Three photos are in the ebird list, showing extensive bright red breast fading
sharply to yellow, limited white stripe on the face, and limited white spots on the wings. 


Location was in the eucs in the northwest corner of the park. Thanks to Nancy
for pointing this out! I amended the ebird list, so let me know if this ssp is not correct. 

Gray Flycatcher was at the previously reported locations, in the central grassy
area as well as the scrubby area to the west. Pin-tailed Whydahs were in the 
north central grassy area with many Lesser Goldfinches.
