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.
