Just saw and pursued from tree to tree a juvenile-immature sapsucker,
either Red-naped or Yellow-bellied, in the southwest corner of the park
about 100 yards northeast of the York-18th Ave intersection.
Smattering of streaky red on head of this brown-tinged bird could mean
either. Both very rare here. I’ll look at my pix at home to get a better
Bird’s attention span was short so no idea if it’ll stick in that area. But
the west side of the park has the oldest trees and is also where I saw
adults of both those species a week apart in April 2018.
