I’ve never seen a northern flicker. This is a red headed woodpecker. Very common around here.
Nah - This is the Red-headed Woodpecker -
Yours is probably (remember I'm the tree guy, not the bird guy) the very poorly named Red-bellied Woodpecker. It is similar to a number of other birds known as Flickers.
There is a pretty good Bird ID app called Merlin from Cornell Labs. Among other things you can get an ID from pictures and/or the call. A lot of these apps aren't perfect - I use some tree id and plant id ones sometimes and they can be close or correct, and other times way off, depending on the quality of the picture.
Gorgeous place!Gorgeous morning in the Bluegrass! Cooler temps and lower humidity for the minute. Heats back up next week.
