Still sorting through old pictures. I had titled this one "Jay and Flicker" but now think it may be a Red-bellied Woodpecker. The placement of red marks on head have me confused.

Picture taken October 2011 in Northern Michigan

I've never seen one in person, but that sure looks like the female Red-Bellied Woodpecker in my guide books.
