wondering about this bird

by Sherri
(San Diego, Ca., USA)

I am visiting my dad outside San Diego area and they have some bird feeders right outside their patio. They have been seeing (as I saw it too)a bird that is medium size but it has a dark body color with a prominent red head (actually looks like a red cap).


Today we actually saw too of them together on the one feeder which my dad said he never saw before. We are just wondering what wild bird this might be. Can anyone help? Thanks
