Continuing; ~3:00 on sycamore with sapsucker holes on north (opposite) side of slough just before first trash disposal warning sign. Reported earlier by Mark Sawyer (http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S40600869). I initially considered this bird to be a Yellow-bellied x Red-naped hybrid given the lack of red on the nape and the seemingly intermediate throat pattern, but have changed the identification based on the following information:

Subject: Question about your Yellow-bellied x Red-naped Sapsucker (hybrid) observation in eBird

Several experts confirmed the original identification as a pure Red-naped Sapsucker, so please change it to that species.

Worn adult "Western" Flycatcher at same location as the hybrid sapsucker. I use playback very infrequently in such situations, but in this case I played the Pacific-slope song once and the bird swooped right down to check out the source. As far as I can tell, this appears to be the first November record for Yolo county. Holly Coates refound the bird on 11/23 (https://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S40683969) and 12/13 (https://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S41073563).
