    Interesting: That northern flicker is a male hybrid of the local red-shafted subspecies (red “mustache”) and the eastern/northern yellow-shafted subspecies (red nape crescent and yellow-orange tail-feather shafts). I saw one almost exactly one year ago on my suet feeder; they’re said to be fairly common. I have pictures but not this good – congratulations, Mark.

Sorry, comment time is over.
