...Richard Pontius sent me some excellent photos of the sapsucker which appears to be the one that most people, if not all, have seen and photographed.  In addition to the head and throat pattern we've discussed, these images also show the bright spots of yellow at the base of the white stripe that runs down the side of the neck and the faint scalloped look to the black chest patch. Joel's pics show those features pretty well, too...
