Observation details

From far away, looked like classic male Yellow-shafted Flicker: Yellow underwing linings, brown face, gray nape with red crescent, black malar. However, on closer look in good light, malar wasn't really black, but some mixture of black and red (like dark maroon), presumably indicating intergrade with Red-shafted. Photos.
