I saw a Sapsucker at VanDusen today, and I thought it was a red-breasted but it seemed... suspicious? I may just be confused but it does seem to have some hints of a Red-Naped in it. I know this is possible but kind of rare (on the coast) I managed to get some shots, but they definitely aren't great... :lol:

For me I think it is a Hybrid (possibly) because the amount of white streaked across his face and the amount of red on his head. Could it be just a immature Red-Breasted? Maybe.

The back of the head sort of hints a red naped...

Could it be??! Probably its just a weird red breasted but always nice to hear other's opinions. Thanks for any suggestions :D !!!
