As many of you know, I'm all about flicker woodpeckers. Today had 4 of them in the yard chasing each other. Only 2 are roosting in my nest boxes this year.
I found this video from Feb 2016. I'm convinced its an intergrade between yellow-shafted and red-shafted. Note its head is gray (red trait), crescent on nape is faded not bright like on a yellow. malar stripe is black (yellow trait).
