Red-naped Sapsucker

The red-naped sapsucker [Sphyrapicus nuchalis] is a medium-sized woodpecker common to the lower elevations of the Rocky Mountains.  They drill holes in trees and feed on sap as it wells into the holes.  They also eat insects, seeds, and berries.

This male was chipping holes into a ponderosa pine.
