Fuzzy red hair standing straight up???

by Amy
(King of Prussia, PA USA)

This was in PA, a small bird, light brown body, red in its tail. It had a reddish orange beak. But, the hair in it's head was literally standing straight up and was red in color. It was pretty cute. We do have woodpeckers around here, so we weren't sure if this was one. Anyone? we tried to get a pic, but it flew away.

Hi, I noticed that you didn't get a positive ID on your bird. You can try for yourself by going to several sites:
AllAboutBirds.org and WhatBird.com or Animals.NationalGeographic.com/animals/birding/
backyard-bird-identifier/ or you can type the species you think it might be into your regular search bar and look for "pictures of" young Cardinal or young
Pileated Woodpecker. I hope this helps
