It t was possibly a female woodpecker. Blueish grey on top of head, the rest of the head was light brown/tan. Neck was a wide darck black but bright red on back of neck. Breast area was light brown/tan with dark black spots evenly spaced. The bird was slightly larger than a cardinal. It also had a slightly long sharply pointed slim beak.

HI,

It is a Northern Flicker and they in the woodpecker family. However it is a male, the females don't have the red cape on their head.

What kind of bird was it that I saw.
by: AnonLeslieymous

It was suggested it might be be a type of finch. Aren't they rather small? This was bigger than a cardinal and robin but slightly smaller than a blackbird. It was beautiful. Thank you Lord for the wonderful things you have created.
