WOW, Kevin. What a find!! I can't tell from the photo what type it is. The overall shape suggests a Red-headed Woodpecker to me, but I can't say for sure. It sure is a rare bird, whatever species it is!!
BTW, welcome to WhatBird. And what part of Ala. are you in? I was born at Mentone.

I agree on the flicker. If you look closely at the 3 shafts on the end of the tail prop and the triangle on the back of the head. What a great find! Hopefully it'll stick around for some better pictures.

BirdBrainy:I agree with flicker, so glad this post had a photo! Quite the find!
Wow! Great Find! Like BirdBrainy said, if this post didn't have a picture, everyone would be so confused.

A true albino mutation would have pink eyes and all white feathers ( they sell cockatiels like this). If the bird has any coloration and probably black eyes, it is therefore leucistic.
