While photographing the Hepatic Tanager in Madera Canyon this week, this Sapsucker appeared and I shot a couple of frames off quickly assuming it was the much more common Red-naped Sapsucker.  In fact, the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker is quite reportable in AZ and I was happy to get a photo that could confirm his presence.  Photo details:  Canon 7D, EF300mm f/4L IS + 1.4x, handheld, 1/250 @ f/5.6, ISO 400, AV mode
