Red-breasted Sapsucker (daggetti) Ottine, Gonzales Co. Texas, 12/29/10

Update:  Feb. 4, 2011:  This animal was deemed to be a hybrid and removed from circulation by me on behalf of the Texas Bird Records Committee based on comments of those more experienced than I.  As a hybrid it would not be added to the state record or anything else as far as I know.  Some allowed they thought if it was was a hybrid, it had mostly  RBSA genes, others contend it is a clean bird.  I don't have a clue and reckon it is not that important.  Still it was a very handsome bird whatever it was...and the photos are here for your use and enjoyment......B
