Red-naped Sapsucker at Lake Isabella Park
- Today,1/2/05, while participating in the Kern River Valley CBC we birded
Lake Isabella Park. We saw the following birds at this park: male Red-naped
Sapsucker, Red-breasted Sapsucker, Cedar Waxwing, American Goldfinches,
White-breasted Nuthatch, Nuttal's Woodpecker, California Towhee, Oak Titmouse,
Phainopepla, and Hermit Thrush. Some of these birds were seen in the gulley on the
north and south side of the park.
The male Red-naped Sapsucker was seen in a tree north of the basketball
court at 2:00 PM. The Red-breasted Sapsucker was seen this morning. Both of
these sapsuckers were heard calling. This evening we will upload a digibin
photo taken of the male Red-naped Sapsucker on the kerncobirding photo section.
