Birded for sapsuckers today noon til 2.
Red-breasted in largest pepper tree directly behind SC County Water District (SCCWD) HQ building on Almaden Expressway.
Yellow-bellied also behind SCCWD HQ. Take the paved path behind the HQ to the river and turn left (toward Blossom Hill Road) on a gravel path for about 200 yards to a chain link fence on the left. The bird today has been in the oak directly across from the fence bend. It was also feeding on a “living” oak down in the river valley slightly back toward the HQ path. Very nervous and occasionally vocal.
The Red-naped Sapsucker was feeding on the heavily scarred sycamore across from Thyme intersection. Turn right off Guadalupe Mines Road on Lavender Creek Road then left at creek and park at Thyme. Tree is on opposite side of creek but viewing is easily done from the creek path. Be patient.
Summer Tanager was calling from the large flowering Eucalyptus on Guadalupe Mines Road and Lavender Creek Road. Easy to hear but hard to see. Good luck.
Please excuse the brevity, the typos, and the sometimes humorous autocorrect changes.
