I've been trying to find one at my feeder for years. One comment...cheeks
don't seem pale gray enough. We see the points you note. Any photos
farther down the back?

Subject: [cobirds] Possible Gilded Flicker, Fort Collins
I photographed a Flicker last Wednesday evening at the feeder behind the
discovery museum in Fort Collins that seems to have traits of Gilded
flicker. Whether this turns out to be Colorado's first Gilded Flicker,
normally a resident of riparian habitat and desert in Arizona, or not
remains to be seen. Elements in the tail, the back and wings and head
suggested Gilded Flicker although the head pattern is somewhat confusing.
It might be a hybrid between Gilded and red shafted flicker but even in
that case I think it's mostly gilded. Here's a photo.
