      HI CALBIRDers,

      This morning (12/7/03) my wife and I photographed and video-taped a sapsucker
      in our SW Idaho backyard that shows all the characteristics (to our eye) of
      being a Red-breasted Sapsucker (perhaps "daggetti"). I saw a nearly identical
      bird in our backyard in February of this year (last winter season), but was
      unable to photograph it.

      Since California experts are much more familiar with daggetti and possible
      Red-breasted/Red-naped hybrids, I would like your professional opinions. Are
      any of you willing to review a few photos at:
      http://trochilids.tripod.com/sapsucker.htm and privately let me know your thoughts? Idaho only has one (or
      maybe two) "good" records of Red-breasted Sapsucker, and we'd like to document
      this one as well as possible.

      Thanks!

      --Stacy

      Wow!  It looks good to me, Stacy (i.e., if I saw the bird here, I wouldn t call it a hybrid), but I d be interested in hearing what other people say!  Take
