Jim in Georgia

This is the first time I have ever seen this bird. It has the Same color as a female Cardinal(Brownish/Taupe) with a large patch of bright orange/red on the back of the neck, medium slender beak, about the same size as a large Robin. My family and I watched it flipping over leaves beneath a tree.

Jim, it sounds like a Gilded Northern Flicker which differs in markings from the Northern Flicker. Does it have a breast ring with a "v" like bib and maybe dots on it's breast or belly? The Gilded Flicker is identical to the Northern Flicker except the red patch is on the back of it's head.

A flicker is also my best guess. Brown Thrashers are always flipping leaves to find insects. I see this almost everyday.

Could it be a flicker?
