After going through my photos, the sapsucker I found and reported from
Denver City Park late Friday morning appears to be a Yellow-bellied
Sapsucker -- an adult male, no red on nape but red cap/forehead and with
red throat completely bordered in black.
This is at least the third sighting in the park in the past 4 years.
Red-naped still has only been recorded in 2017, same bird twice within a
week or so in April.
