(Sphyrapicus ruber daggetti)
This second image shows the southern race, (S. ruber daggetti), which I was fortunate enough to see in California. The immature female is the top bird, the lower one being an adult male. Both are part of a larger painting showing all the sapsucker species, and the images have been slightly altered to remove overlapping parts of other birds. Acrylic on compressed hardboard.
