While stopped at Linda Vista Drive and McClellan Road, we saw three Northern Flickers in a tree. I'd never seen so many together. When we parked, we realized there were six around us. Later while checking the photos, I realized one of them may have been a Yellow x Red shafted cross. In the image, the bird on the right has a black malar, no red nape crescent, and orange-ish shafts to its feathers. eBird List S78680134 ( https://ebird.org/checklist/S78680134 ). This is the second cross I've seen in a week. The first was at Merced NWR.
