In Missouri

by BECKY
(Jackson County Missouri)

This bird had a reddish brown back and head with a yellow beak. White breast and underneath his brown tail feathers were white polka dots about the size of dimes. I'd say three down each side. It was about the size of a Bluejay. I thought at first it was maybe a woodpecker but the beak was rounded, not the sharp pointed beak they have. The poor thing died from flying into my deck's sliding door.
