Central Texas Panhandle - 4/18/2021.  I heard some pecking in a tree and when I investigated I noticed what looked like the tail feathers of a Yellow-shafted Flicker poking out of the hole it was excavating.  A few minutes later it's head was sticking out of the hole and it had a dark red malar instead of a black one typically found with YSFL.  It flew from the cavity and I snapped a couple more photos.  Question is this an intergraded Northern flicker Red/Yellow shafted form?
