Yesterday on my suet feeder in Bellingham, I saw a northern flicker with a prominent red patch on the back of it's neck. Sibley's identifies this as the yellow shafted sub-species from the eastern tiaga. However, when it flew, it clearly was red shafted. I have never seen this on the west side of the mountains. Has anyone else?
