Records Committee Review:

  Date Posted


1st round: 20 Oct 2017 3 acc, 6 not
2nd round: 17 Dec 2017 0 acc, 9 not
Completed: 18 Feb 2018 Not Accepted


Summary:  A molting juvenile presented some interesting discussion in the committee, but in the second round it was decided that there were too many Red-naped Sapsucker characteristics to accpet this as a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
