Same bird. It comes every evening at dusk, hangs on the brick in a high corner at the patio door, and leaves at dawn.

Thanks for the answers. I was able to track this one down by simply searching on "bird attached to my stucco" and your answers popped up. I had taken a picture of it with its head tucked but there were no real discernible markings other than the pattern. I'd post a pic, but I don't see the option.

Wall clinging bird
by: Val

We have had a very simular bird for the past 4 months clinging to the stucco in our entry. Ours has orange on its cheeks. I've never seen it's belly or with wings open. Took 4 months to see it's head untucked.

Your Flicker
by: Judy-Seattle

Hi Sharon! You have a female flicker. Only the male red-shafted flicker has the red patch on the side of his head. The yellow-shafted flicker has a red patch on the back of his head, but not on the sides. Do they cling to brick walls??? Well, obviously this one does! :-)

Didn't see any red on the head. Do they cling to brick walls?
