In a follow-up regarding the juvenile sapsucker at lower elevation in 

Grayson Co., VA., Thursday, 7 Aug. 2014, Allen Boynton sent along

additional details to help more narrowly define the elevation and

location: "The sapsucker last night was just shy of 2900 feet near my house.

I never see sapsuckers here during the breeding season and my

earliest post-breeding record before this sighting was September 3rd, 2000."

He lives in the Troudale, VA area.
