After several trips to Sycamore Creek off Guadalupe Mines Road I finally had photos of my suspected female YELLOW BELLIED SAPSUCKER. This bird had a black bib and crown, a white chin and no red on the nape. It called occasionally and was extremely skittish. I last saw it from the trail where Lavender Creek joins Sycamore creek in a large leaning Sycamore. Other birds drank sap from the many wells as I waited for an opportunity to view it briefly. I sent my photos to Steve Rottenborn for confirmation. Attached is an example.
