Hi Kimberly.

Looks like a Hairy to me! The bill is the right length relative to the head. Juvenile HAWOs have a more extensive (sometimes even orangish) crown than adults, so I suspect this individual is a Juvenile male whose red hair hasn't receded yet, if you will (like mine has).  Third picture down in this webpage shows the more extensive red on a juvenile male... 


Hope this helps (and is correct!)

Flickers and sapsuckers abound in my backyard, but this one is new to me and I am more than a little confused by his pattern and coloring. Hairy? Downy? Clever spy drone? What is he?
