20+ yrs ago I convinced myself that I had a Ladder-back in my back yard (I’ve never seen one), and got so excited I started calling people to come over and confirm. Turned out to be a juvenile Hairy with some oddly placed white feathers down both sides of its back, i.e. partially leucistic (sp?). So that one remains a future lifer for me.

Subject: Apologies- No Ladder-back

 

My apologies for reporting a Ladder-backed Woodpecker at our feeder.  It was a Red-bellied.  Ladder-backs were common in San Antonio where I lived for many years, and I must have had a lapse.  Senior moments are coming by more frequently.
