  1. Northern flicker is probably the closest I've seen, but I can't find any pictures where they are almost solid brown or with a white stripe on the back of the head. The bird I have seen has no spotting like what I've seen in flicker pictures. The general shape and size of a flicker is similar though. I've seen a bird like this over the last couple years. My stepdad says it's a wood thrush but the pictures of them don't look similar. Thanks
  2. Only one at a time, and not frequently, since they seem to prefer wooded areas, but I've seen 2 in the last week. It reminds me a bit of a large woodpecker, but almost all brown.
  3. Pretty much solid brown, except the white on back of head and under tail, and black band on throat. I've only seen it sitting in trees or flying. Thanks
  4. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of one. Almost all brown, slightly larger than a blue jay. White vertical stripe on back of head, little bit of white on underside of tail, black band on throat/chest. Tail is short, beak is kind of long and narrow, somewhat like a woodpecker. I see them in southeastern Ohio from time to time, mostly in wooded areas. I have looked in every book I can find and on this site, and can't find anything like it. Thanks
