Subject: [sbcobirding] Sapsucker ID
I can use some education with Sapsucker ID.

I photo'd a Sapsucker at LL Carneros this AM.
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39826527

The bird has a complete black malar stripe, compatible with YBSA, but the back of the bird has white longitudinal bands more like a RNSA. There is no white on the chin, so it can't be a female RNSA, which I guess can have a black malar stripe. There's no red nape, but apparently that is not diagnostic.
