The red-naped sapsucker is a woodpecker whose name is very descriptive its characteristics. They are black with white patterns on the back and wings, with distinguished markings of red on their nape, chin, and back of the head. The female has white as well as red on the chin. They drill rows of small holes in trees for sap, which attracts the insects they eat. Red-naped sapsuckers can be found in coniferous and deciduous wooded areas, they particularly frequent aspen groves. I saw this bird in the neighborhood on a walk one morning. I love the “eyes” on the aspen with the bird looking my direction.
