Nice pics, not to be a smart aleck or anything but isn't that a Red bellied WP? It has the head of a Northern flicker and the body of a Red Bellied WP... maybe the flickers just look different down in the desert.... correct me or enlighten me. :-)

I don't think it's a northern flicker either. Just checked my bird book, and the head markings aren't quite the same for either male or female northern f. Close though. Maybe Dave knows. He's the i.d. expert here. Oh, and great shots here. Looks like you were up close and personal to get these.....'kman.

Thanks for the comments. Actually. after closer examination, I think it might be a Gila Woodpecker.

And you would be quite right. Can't be anything else, except for the Ivory Billed Woodpecker, common in Brooklyn, but non-existant anywhere else.
