Any Yellow-bellied Sapsucker experts in the house? in Help Me Identify a North American Bird Posted January 7, 2020 11 minutes ago, akandula said: Cool bird! Yes, your bird is a first winter male, just for the reason you stated (there’s a mix of brown juvenal feathers and red adult feathers on the throat/crown). These feathers usually become fully adult by Dec-May. Very good! Thanks for confirming.
