It looks like a Northern (Yellow or Red Shafted) Flicker.¬* It's hard to see the color.¬* Tons of them out here on the Left Coast.¬* ¬*Steve

Given his location, it is almost certainly a yellow shafted. The red ones are basically only on the other side of the US.

They are great birds, aren't they? I love'm.

You know eric, i have¬* seen a lot of different species of birds in CT in the last ten or fifteen years, that were not around or noticeable in the 50's.¬*¬* ¬*Now that I'm a "little" older I seem to notice things I may have overlooked when I was younger.¬* ¬*You are right , they are great looking birds. Thanks for the information.....Ray
