Northern Flicker - Yellow Shafted - 094A5108a1c

Going through my photos I realized that this NOFL is the Eastern variety rather than our usual Western Red Shafted. A perfect match to Sibley's description "have yellow underside of wings and tail, gray crown and nape, and brown face. They always have a red crescent on the nape, and males have a black (not red) malar stripe"
