I saw this little fella this morning as I was walking a wooded path. It was pretty overcast at the time with fairly dense tree coverage so I was really challenged (limited) on what I could get. At first I thought it was a scruffy Downy, but I looking on the comp screen I'm not so sure. Could this possible be a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker?

He was really flighty on top of being in the thicket. :-/

Thank you, Doc.

You don't see them in our area, so despite the IQ it's still neat.

I tried these two again, using DXO and I think they may have come out better.

This is a female Yellow bellied Sapsucker. The males have red under the beak.

It's a female. The males have red under the beak as well as on top of the head.
