  1. Where did you get that?
  2. I originally reported this as YBSA / RNSA, since that is how it has been reported by most others -- as recommended by Kimball Garrett to original finder Mark Scheel. However, I have decided to change my report to simply "sapsucker sp."
  3. In the book "National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of Western North America," regarding YBSA it notes: "a few adults show some reddish on nape."
  4. @DLecy > From my photos, you can't see that there are 2 or 3 red feathers on the nape. This seems to be the main reason people are considering this may be a hybrid. But even so, it has not been determined to be a hybrid. I just thought the folks here would be interested in seeing this bird and giving their thoughts on it. The bird was found at Castaic Lagoon (Los Angeles County) on 12-29-2023 by Mark and Janet Scheel. Below are some checklists that have photos showing the red feathers on the nape, along with some interesting comments -- for those who are interested: Mark and Janet Scheel -- 12-29-2023 >> https://ebird.org/checklist/S157456112 SVC CBC (Naresh Satyan) -- 12-30-2023 >> https://ebird.org/checklist/S157554353 Mark Scheel -- 12-31-2023 >> https://ebird.org/checklist/S157659079 Jeffrey and Mary Fenwick -- 1-1-2024 >> https://ebird.org/checklist/S157746890 Chef Ito -- 1-1-2024 >> https://ebird.org/checklist/S157747926
  5. No, it was seen in the morning. I was there in the afternoon. There were a bunch of people staking it out. It was finally seen again just after I left.
