red-naped sapsucker in
I've been going over old photos (2020) and found
this juvenile (I believe) Red-naped Sapsucker at Garr
on Antelope Island, Davis County, UT  There
were better trees and many more birds back
 then. Carol Davis 9-17-2006

Red-naped Sapsucker
This parent was feeding the young, then she would swoop in and clean out the nest (wings and other leftovers) and then she would
go hunt for food again.  There is no rest for parents in the bird world.  I found this nest at Brighton, UT  Carol Davis, 7-13-2008

The Red-naped Sapsucker had two rows of white
down its back as evidenced
in this photo taken at Garr Ranch. Carol Davis 10-10-2005
