This pic is from very far away so its not good. What type of woodpecker is this? I won't say what I'm thinking because it may be wishful thinking on my part,lol. Notice the low black collar, spotted chest, long beak and red on back of his head. Thanks for you help!
pelle-- interesting to see your photo! --Resin your eyes must be very sharp! We are lucky to have flickers visiting our feeders yet I didn't recognize it.
I suppose, pelle, you are in the Eastern migratory flyway? When I googled 'Flickers' I was surprised to read that they are migratory and head back to Canada and points north in March. Can't find many details on their paths, though.
