Subject: Intergrade Flicker
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).

video is only a minute long.
