As far as I can tell, our Red-shafted Flickers go to where the Yellow-shafted Flickers live
(higher elevation? other side of the mountains? further north?)(who travels? the males? or the females?),
and when it is time for the young to disburse we start seeing them here.
I would love to be able to see a full Yellow-shafted Flicker in my yard (I too have had intergrades in my yard--one of whom is banded).
More study is needed....
