Hi Liu,

I came to the conclusion this was a juvenile bird because
when googling for images of sapsuckers matching the one in your picture it came up with a nearly identical one with same identical coloration and wing bar markings and was labeled as a juvenile or younger bird that has not yet received its full color.

Thank you very much John. I also think it is a yellow bellied, but why do you think it is a Juvenile? Because it has no red cap?

Based on markings and coloration it appears this might be a Juvenile Yellow Bellied Sapsucker.
