What type of bird is this?

One of my web cams captured this image a couple weeks ago:


This was on the farm near Orofino Idaho where I grew up. And I don’t ever recall seeing a bird with these markings before. Any idea what type of bird it is?

  1. Definitely Northern Flicker. I have these guys all around my house on the west side of the mountain

  2. We get gilded flickers and Gila woodpeckers here in AZ. Pretty birds. One of the Gilas has a nest in our big saguaro.
