While wandering around my yard on October 7, 2020 looking for birds with my camera, I was stunned to see this YELLOW-SHAFTED NORTHERN FLICKER in my Aspen tree in COLORADO!!! He stayed a short time to feed /refuel, & drink in my FeederWatch area! I have the western Red-shafted Northern Flickers as my usual yard residents.

Let’s run an exchange program. I’ve never seen a Red-Shafted here in Tennessee.
First of all – nice photo. I have an intergrade male that’s been coming to the yard for several years – gray face and red malar of the Red-shafted form but yellow wing and tail linings of the Yellow-shafted form, no red nape crescent. I keep hoping that a true Yellow-shafted will make its way up the South Platte drainage to Denver. So far, no luck.
