Red-breasted Sapsucker

This local rarity is probably only the 6th record for the Okanagan. Found by the South Okanagan Naturalists on Thursday. This guy is waaaay up the tree so this is the best photo I could manage. Note how it is peeling away the bark at the base of each branch in this Douglas Fir.
