I can't say that I've noticed it in Northern Flickers, but I have noticed young Downy Woodpeckers getting red on their forehead before it comes in on the back of the crown so maybe it's a woodpecker thing. 

Yeah, and I think even young female Downies can sometimes have the red on the forehead.  The thing is, the other flicker with it is also young (it has the pale eyering).  But maybe it's a little older or something..
