red nape sans nape?
- Hello all,
While checking on one of my Atlas II blocks I saw a yellow-bellied
sapsucker without a yellow belly. Actually I believe I saw a male
red-naped sapsucker without the red nape. I saw this bird (and heard
many other woodpeckers) along the 90 road just west of Montrose near
mile post 4. So are red-naped sapsuckers without the red nape common?
The few other red-napes I've seen always had the red nape.
